NOTES FAMILY. 



Reverend William Noves was born in Engrland duringr the 
year 1568. He matriculated at University College, Oxford, 
15 November, 1588, at the age of twenty years, and was 
graduated B. A., 31 May, 1592. He was Rector of the Parish 
of Choulderton in Wiltshire, situated between Amesbury in 
Wiltshire and Andover in Hampshire, and eleven miles from 
Salisbury, which contains the great Salisbury Cathedral, built 
in the year 1220 A. D., whose lofty tower overlooks the dead 
Roman city of Sarum and " Stonehenge," the ruins of the won- 
derful prehistoric temple of the ancient Celtic Druids, in the 
midst of Salisbury Plain. The register of the Diocese shows 
that he officiated in the Parish from 1602 to 1620, at which time 
he resigned. He was then appointed Attorney General to the 
King. He was succeeded as rector by his son. Rev. Nathan 
Noyes. 

Rev. William Noyes married Ann Parker, who was a sister 
of Rev. Robert Parker, a learned Puritan divine, and a graduate 
of Oxford, who was driven to Holland for " non-conformity " to 
Queen Elizabeth's forms. 

He died intestate before 30 April, 1622, when an inventory 
was made, and his widow was appointed administratrix 28 
May, 1622 (Court of Archdeacon of Sarum). His widow was 
buried at Choulderton 1 March, 1657, aged eighty-two years 



8 THE NOYES FAMILY. 

(Parish Register), Her will is at Somerset House, London 
(Wooten, 130), and mentions sons James and Nicholas in New- 
England. Will was dated March, 1655, and proved 21 April, 
1658, at London. James, his brother Nicholas and their cousin, 
Thomas Parker, came to New England in 1634, and from James 
and Nicholas Noyes have sprung the Noyes family in America. 

^ James ^ Noyes was born about the year 1608 at Choulderton 
in Wiltshire, England. He matriculated at Brasenose College, 
Oxford, 22 August, 1627, but was not graduated. The Rev. 
Thomas Parker took him for his assistant at his school in New- 
bury in Berkshire. 

He married, early in 1634, Sarah, eldest daughter of Mr. 
Joseph Brown of Southampton, England. In March of that 
year they embarked for New England on the "Mary and John" 
of London. They settled in Medford, where the county records 
show him to have been a resident in 1634, where he was made 
Freeman, September 3, 1634, and where "he preached" (Brook's 
History of Medford). It is said that " for a time he officiated 
in the Watertown Church" (probably as an assistant to Rev. 
George Phillips). 

His cousin. Rev. Thomas Parker, was at first called to 
Ipswich to join M'ith Mr. Ward, but he, choosing rather to 
accompany some of his countrymen (who came out of Wiltshire 
in England) to that new place, than to be engaged with such as 
he had not been acquainted withal before, removed with them 
and settled at Newbury (Coffins' Newbury, pp. 11, 12). Newbury, 
Mass., was incorporated as a town in the spring of 1635. 

Uniform tradition asserts that the few original settlers came 
by water from Ipswich through Plum Island Sound and up the 
river Quascacunquen (now river Parker) to the place they had 



THE NOYES FAMILY. 9 

selected as their future habitation. Tradition also asserts that 
they landed on the north bank of the river about one hundred 
rods below the spot where the bridge now stands, and that 
Nicholas Noyes was the first who leaped ashore. Among these 
original settlers was Mr. Thomas Parker, Mr. James Noyes and 
wife, and brother Nicholas Noyes (Newbury, p. 15). 

Rev. Mr. Parker and Rev. Mr. Noyes began, almost imme- 
diately, to form a church. The first meeting was on the Sabbath 
and held in the open air, under a tree. Rev. Mr. Parker was 
chosen pastor " in that waye of church discipline which he then 
preached for, the congregational waye" (Newbury, p. 17). 

Mr. James Noyes was at the same time chosen teacher. He 
was the son of a minister, who married a sister of Mr. Robert 
Parker, and was, of course, a cousin of Mr. Thomas Parker. 

Rev. Cotton Mather in his "Magnolia" says: "They 
taught in one school (in England), came over in one ship, were 
pastor and teacher in one church and, Mr. Parker continuing 
always in celibacy, they lived in 07te house till death separated 
them for a time." 

For a few years after the settlement of the town their resi- 
dence was on the west side of the " lower green," but on the 
removal of the meeting-house Mr. Noyes built a house in what 
is now Parker street. It is still standing and is owned by one 
of his descendants, Mr. Silas Noyes, and is one of the oldest 
houses in Newbury. Of Mr. James Noyes his cousin Parker 
writes: " Mr. James Noyes, my worthy colleague in the ministry 
of the gospel, was a man of singular qualifications, in piety 
excelling, an implacable enemy to all heresie and schism, and a 
most able warriour against the same. He was of a reaching 
and ready apprehension, a large invention, a most profound

judgment, a rare and tenacious and comprehensive memory, 
fixed and un movable in his grounded conceptions, sure in words 
and speach, without rashness ; gentle and mild in all his expres- 
sions, without all passion or provoking language. And as he 
was a notable disputant, so he never would provoke his adver- 
sary, saving by the short knocks and heavy weight of argument. 
He was of so loving, and compassionate, and humble carriage, 
that I believe never were any acquainted with him but did desire 
the continuance of his society and acquaintance. He was reso- 
lute for truth and in defense thereof, had no respect to any 
persons. He was a most excellent counsellor in doubts, and 
could strike at a hair's breadth, like the Benjamites, and expedite 
the entangled out of the briars. He was courageous in danger, 
and still was apt to believe the best, and made fair weather in a 
storm. He was much honored and esteemed in the country, and 
his death was much bewailed. I think he may be reckoned 
among the greatest worthies of the age." He died 22 October, 
1656. His will was dated IV October, 1656, five days before 
his death, and was proved 26 November. In it he mentions 
wife Sara and children, brother Deacon Nicholas Noyes and 
cousin Rev. Thomas Parker. Inventory of estate amounted to 
£657 lis. 4d. His widow's will was dated 11 November, 
1681, she died in Newbury 13 September, 1691, and her will 
was proved 29 September, 1691. Inventory of estate amounted 
to £1108.

10, 1674, he was regularly ordained as the first minister of 
Stonington, and continued to preach there as the pastor of the 
First Congregational Church until his death, which occurred 
December 30, 1719. His ministry covered a period of fifty-five 
years. The day following his ordination, (September 11, 1674,) 
he married ''Dorothy^ Stanton, who was born in 1651, and was 
a daughter of Thomas Stanton, of Hartford. Her mother was 
3 Ann 2, daughter of Thomas Lord, of Hartford. 

Dorothy died in Stonington, Conn., January 19, 1743-4. 



12 THE NOYES FAMILY. 

Rev. James 2 was very highly respected by the people and filled 
many positions of trust and honor. 

He served as a soldier and volunteer against the Indians in 
the Narraganset war, and received land for services rendered in 
what is now Voluntown, Conn. (Bodge' s Soldiers of King 
Philip's war, page 443, Narraganset Register, Vol. 1, p. 144). 

"In April, 1697, upon the motion of the Honorable Lieut. - 
Governour Stoughton, and information that the enemy, Indians, 
intended to scatter into small companies, to do mischief upon 
his Majestie's subjects, the Governour and Councill also being 
moved by the worshipful Captain Samuel Mason and the 
Reverent Mr. James Noise, ordered a letter sent to Captain 
Samuel Mason and Mr. James Noise, desiring them to promote 
of raising twentie or thirtie men, English and Indians, furnished 
with arms, ammunition and provision, to range the woods 
between Nashua (now in N. H.) and Deerfield, Mass., and near 
Mamerrimack River, and between Hadley and Marlburrough as 
they shall judge best. And the Governour and Councill being 
informed that the enemy, Indians, intended to scatter and to sett 
upon the small towns upon the river that were secure. Warrants 
were sent to the several constables of the towns in danger to see 
that due watch and ward be kept." (Conn. Col. Record, Vol, 4, 
p. 196.) In 1700 he petitioned that Wequatook be allowed to 
succeed his father in the government of the Indians he lives 
with, (Conn. Col. Record, Vol. 4, p. 32.) Appointed by 
Assembly one of a committee to settle differences regarding 
division of land in Quinnebaug. In 1708 he was granted 200 
acres of land ; was also one of the founders of Yale College. 

The remains of Rev. James^ Notes are buried in the 
ancient burying-place ground, upon a sloping hill on the east

iJOHN B.«, (Nathans Thomas*, ThomasS Rev. JamesS 
Rev. James 1). 

Born, 17V3, in Stonington, Conn. Died at 
Scott Corners, New York, June 5, 1854, in his eighty-second 
year. 

Married ^ Sarah* Berry, born at Westerly, R. I., June 20, 
17*76, and who died at Scott Corners, New York, October 7, 
1857, in her eighty-second year. The facts connected with the 
history of this family were left in manuscript by his son, Samuel 
B. Noyes, and were written between the years 1877, (when com- 
menced), and 1883, (when last record was made). 

The marriage date of John B. Noyes and Sarah Berry is not 
found, but she is positively identified from the fact that in his 
manuscript he speaks of going to Westerly, R. I., to visit his 
uncle, Saxton Berry. (See Berry family). He also speaks at 
the same time of visiting his uncle, ^Nathan^ Noyes. 

John B. Noyes and Sarah, his wife, are buried side by side 
in the grave-yard at Scott Corners, near the head of Skeneatles 
Lake. He removed from Rhode Island about December, 1802, 
and, with their children, Lydia, Samuel B. and Asenath, settled 
in the town of Brookfield, Madison County, New York, and 
lived in a log house during the winter of 1805. During 1806 he 
lived in a house that was built for a corn-house, narrower at the 
bottom than at the top. It was very small for a family to live

in, but had to answer the purpose of a house. Clarinda was 
born in this house. 

His next move was " over the swamp " in what is now Sandis- 
field, Oneida County. He had taken a small grist-mill to attend, 
on shares, in order to enable him to provide for his growing 
family, in that, then, new country. The mill was propelled 
by an " overshot wheel," twelve or fourteen feet in diameter. 
The water came from a small stream, near which the mill 
stood, and ran through a trough, elevated on a trestle, made of 
logs, laid up in a square at the bottom and gradually tapering 
toward the top. 

Church was held in a barn, and the "district school" was 
two miles away. 

He moved back to Brookfield, about three miles from the 
mill, and to a point a little south of what is now called North 
Brookfield, formerly called "Negro City." He lived, as tenant, 
in a house owned by Mr. Keth, for whom he worked. Lovina 
was born in this house. He lived there about one year, and then 
moved to another house one mile distant, where he lived one 
year, and then moved to Pharsalia, Chenango County, twenty 
miles distant, and lived there two years. In the winter of 
1811-12 he moved to Smyrna Hill, two and a half miles from 
Smyrna Village. This was about the time of the commence- 
ment of the War of 1812. Times were extremely hard, provisions 
were both scarce and dear, and the amount of perseverance and 
self-sacrifice required in order to provide for a large family can 
hardly be realized. 

In March, 1813, he put his household effects aboard a large 
sleigh, placed his family, as comfortably as was possible, among 
his furniture and left Smyrna Hill for Cayuga County, New

York. Two days from that time he arrived at the town of 
Sempronius, (now Niles). 

In the fall of 1813 he moved into a house about a half mile 
north of Perry ville. In the summer of 1815 he obtained the 
privilege of building a house on a small piece of land, owned by 
Daniel Raymond, and which land was cut off from his farm by 
a deep gully, containing three or four acres. As payment for 
putting up the house he was to have its use for four years. He 
lived in this house five years, and Leonard R. was born here. 
It was rather a romantic spot, surrounded by woods and not far 
from neighbors. He moved to Venice, New York, about 1820, 
and later to Scott Corners, where he died as above stated.

staff of Omar Pacha, the commander of the 
Turkish forces. He was afterward correspond- 
ent, in Turkey, Palestine and Egypt, of the 
New York "Tribune," Detroit " Free Press," 
and other journals. On his return to New 
York he engaged in literary pursuits, and 
became proprietor and chief editor of the 
"Knickerbocker Magazine" in 1858. He went 
to Fort Monroe, Virginia, as a newspaper cor- 
respondent, at the beginning of the Civil War; 
engaged in various army contracts and subse- 
quently in planting. He settled in New 
Orleans after the war, was appointed Commis- 
sioner of Immigration for the State of Louisi- 
ana, and, in that capacity, revisited Europe.

Academy, and Fort Edward Collegiate Insti- 
tute, after which he spent several years farm- 
ing and teaching. In 1862 he went to Louisi- 
ana, and engaged in business in New Orleans. 
In 1864 he became superintendent of the 
Mexican and Gulf Ship Canal Company, and 
also, the New Orleans Drainage Company, 
which consumed several years. In 18*74 he 
returned to his native state and town. In 
1893 he removed to Auburn, and engaged 
in the seed trade, which still occupies his 
attention. After holding the position of 
Supervisor eight years in Owasco, he was 
elected to the State Assembly, by the Repub- 
licans of S. Cayuga District, in 1878 and 1879, 
re-elected 1882, 1890 and 1891, and served on 
the committees of Public Education, Canals,

Genoa, New York, June 25, 1837, Jane Jessup, (born, December 
20, 1820), daughter of Samuel and Rachel (Rundle) Jessu].. He 
resided in Genoa, New York, until the fall of 1854, when he, his 
wife and his four children removed to Springville, Linn County, 
Iowa, where they arrived on the 20th of October in a covered

wagon, in which they had made the journey, and which served 
for their shelter for some weeks, for the reason that they could 
find no home to live in. Leonard succeeded in buying an empty 
log school-house in Springville, one of the four houses which the 
town contained at that time, and sold it the next day, with the 
privilege of living in it until his house should be completed. 
With his home thus established, he began building an 18x24, 
story-and-a-half, log house on his farm. This was completed so 
that the family moved into it on the 11th day of January, 1855, 
he having got out all the logs with little or no help, loading 
them onto the wagon, three at a time, assisted only by the horses. 
The house was the best of its kind and generous in appearance. 
It sheltered the family well for nearly twenty-two years, when it 
gave place to the present residence. Mr. Noyes lived on his 
farm nearly thirty-seven years, during which time the face of 
the country changed from a wild, houseless, treeless prairie to 
one of the richest and best farming sections in this or any other 
State, and became covered with artificial groves not equalled 
anywhere in number, beauty or size. In this great work of 
tree planting he was the first and most active, and his influence 
contributed very largely to what has been done by others. 

At the time of Mr. Noyes' death there were an elm and a 
maple among the eight hundred forest trees standing on his farm, 
which he planted, that were over thirty-three inches in diameter, 
thus showing that, in middle life, one may plant the forest tree 
and see it attain great size. When he first moved to his prairie 
home, he could stand in his front door and see Marion, seven 
and one-half miles to the west, or the little village of Fairview, 
six miles to the east, with but one or two other houses in sight. 
The village of Fairview has since ceased to be even a post-office. 



28 THE NOYES FAMILY. 

During the War of the Rebellion Mr. Noyes was a staunch 
Union man, and when the Southern sympathizers got too noisy 
in his neighborhood, he and a neighbor, went to Marion and 
enrolled themselves in the Union League, which organization, as 
is well known, had a very quieting effect. Mr. Noyes' courage, 
energy and ability were never questioned. During his most 
active years he wrote frequently for the agricultural papers, and 
his articles were widely copied. His farm was noted, far and 
near, as a model of good husbandry, and on this account he was 
at one time, without his knowledge, strongly urged for the 
position of Superintendent of the Iowa Agricultural College 
farm, but he would not accept the position. Though always a 
strong and active Abolitionist, Republican and Prohibitionist, 
he neither sought nor hold any political office. To the good 
judgment, serene life and perfect helpfulness of his wife he 
owed much of the success of his long life. She survived him 
nearly four and one-half years, and died on Tuesday morning, 
April V, 1896, at the age of seventy-five years, three months and 
seventeen days, after a residence of forty- two years in Linn 
County. Directly after the death of her husband she moved to 
Central City to make her home with her daughter, Mrs. William 
M. Giffen. These latter years were entirely free from care, 
serene and enjoyable to an unusual degree for a person of her 
age. She made many visits to her former home and friends in 
Cayuga County, New York, and often visited her son, La Verne 
W. Noyes, in Chicago. Those who knew her best say that she 
dealt gently with all, and was never heard to speak an unkind 
word of anyone, while her influence over children was such that 
they would not quarrel in her presence. One might call her an 
apostle of peace; yet, to her country, she bravely gave up her

eldest son. She was extremely fond of good reading, took a 
deep interest in the world's progress, in history and the affairs 
of the day, and always had the happy faculty of making and 
keeping friends.

STANTON FAMILY. 



1 THOMAS' STANTON, born in England about 1615, took 
passage for Virginia in the merchantman 
"Bonaventura" on January 2, 1635, and 
recorded himself as being twenty years old. The ship record 
shows no other passenger named Stanton. It is certain, there- 
fore, that he came unattended by any relative bearing the same 
name. There is no proof that Thomas was related in any way 
to any person in America, or that any relatives ever followed 
him to this country. There is a family tradition that, before his 
death, he received a legacy from his former home across the 
sea, but no record has been found to prove it. Undoubtedly 
there were on record in New London, Conn., many records and 
documents that would have been invaluable witnesses as to Mr. 
Stanton's origin, ancestry and early life. Ilis will was probably 
recorded there, and no other copy of it has, as yet, been found. 
But the New London County records were destroyed in 1781 by 
the traitor, Benedict Arnold, when he sacked and burnt New 
Loudon town. 

Evidently Mr. Stanton's stay in Virginia was very short. In 
1636 he appears on record in Boston, Mass., serving as a magis- 
trate. He may have traded and mingled a little with the Indians 
in Virginia, acquired some knowledge of their language, and 
then sailed for New England. The next known of Mr, Stanton 



THE STANTON FAMILY. 31 

is in connection with the Pequot War. Just before the war he 
had been serving Winthrop, as Indian interpreter, while the 
latter was in command at Saybrook. July 4, 1636, Mr. Fenwick, 
Mr. Hugh Peters and Mr. Thomas Stanton bore instructions 
from Boston, to Winthrop, at Fort Saybrook, Conn., (going over- 
land) as to the Pequots. The war followed immediately. 

Caulkins' History of New London, Conn., (page 296), says: 
" The services of Mr. Stanton, as interpreter, during the Pequot 
War, were invaluable. He was, moreover, a man of trust and 
intelligence, and his knowledge of the country and of the natives 
made him a useful pioneer and counselor in all land questions, 
as well as difficulties witli the Indians." In De Forest's 
"History of the Indians of Conn." (p. iii), is another record of 
a second visit to Saybrook, near the end of the war, when his 
commander was the historic soldier. Captain Lion Gardiner. 
De Forest says: Sometime in April (1637) a small vessel 
arrived at the fort having on board Thomas Stanton, a man well 
acquainted with the Indian language, and long useful to the 
Colonial Authorities as interpreter. 

Mr. Stanton served through the war. Special mention is 
made of his bravery in the battle of Fairfield Swamp, where he 
well nigh lost his life. 

Bodge, in his History of Indian Wars, page 18, says (speak- 
ing of the Battle of Fairfield Swamp): "The brief skirmish at 
the beginning admonished the English that they were now 
facing a brave and desperate foe, no longer entirely at their 
mercy. There was a rumor also, brought back by the two 
captive girls to Wethersfield, that the Pequots had some sixteen 
muskets, which they might craftily discharge upon their assail- 
ants unexpectedly. So they decided to hold a parley with the

foe. Thomas Stanton was sent to speak with them, readily 
understanding their language, and offering to go upon this 
service. He soon returned with about two hundred old men, 
women and children, including the local tribe. Then the 
warriors sent the challenge from the Swamp that they would 
fight it out with the English to the end, and Stanton, going once 
more to them, to urge terras of their surrender, was met with a 
fierce volley of arrows, so as to scarcely escape with his life. 
Then the guards were set and close watch kept all night, with 
frequent shooting on both sides. In the deepest darkness, about 
an hour before the dawn, the savages massed their numbers, 
and, after some desperate fighting, broke through Captain 
Patrick's lines and escaped." He must have returned very soon 
after peace was secured, for Drake in his " History of Boston" 
names him as one of the Magistrates in the trial of John Wheel- 
wright, which took place October 3, 1637. 

The next seventeen months of Mr. Stanton's life were event- 
ful ones, for during them occurred his marriage and settlement 
in Hartford, Conn. In February, 1639, there were one hundred 
and twenty seven property holders in Hartford, and among them 
were Dr. Thomas Lord and his son-in-law, Thomas Stanton. 

The time of Mr. Stanton's arrival and marriage is not known. 
His wife was ^Ann^, daughter of Dr. Thomas and Dorothy 
Lord. 

In 1649 the General Court granted him liberty to erect a 
trading house at Pawcatuck, with six acres of planting ground, 
and liberty to ti-ade for three years. He soon went to Pawca- 
tuck, but his family remained in Hartford. He and his family 
afterward went to Pequot. He filled many important posts in 
connection with the Indians and colony.

In 1665 he was Commissioner of Stonington, to hold semi- 
annual Court. Representative to General Court, 1666, 1667. 
He died December 2, 1677, and his will was proved June, 1678.

LORD FAMILY. 



iTHOMASi LORD, wife and family, were registered 29th 
April, 1635, for transportation from the port 
of London to New England, in the ship 
"Elizabeth and Ann," of which Captain Robert Cooper was 
Master. Thomas was fifty years old, (born 1585); his wife, 
Dorothy, forty-six, (born 1589); and their children, Thomas, 
sixteen; Ann, fourteen; William, twelve; John, ten; Robert, 
nine; Aymie, six; Dorothy, four. (Hotten's Original Lists.) 

Thomas Lord first settled at Newtown, afterward called 
Cambridge, Massachusetts, where his eldest son, Richard, born 
in 1611, had already established himself in 1632. Savage (in his 
Genealogical Dictionary) says that his father "perhaps had sent 
him to look out the most desirable place for his friends, Gov- 
ernor Haynes and Reverend Thomas Hooker," who came over 
in 1633 with "two hundred other passengers of importance to 
the colony." Here he remained " a year or more." But in 
1636-37 this family were of that large company which was led, 
by Rev. Thomas Hooker, from Massachusetts, to form a new set- 
tlement on the Connecticut River. Thomas Lord thus became 
an original proprietor, and one of the first settlers of Hartford. 
He lived on the " north side," fronting Mill River, a near neigh- 
bor of Gov. Haynes, Rev. Mr. Hooker, Mr. Goodwin, Gov. 
Wyllys, Mr. Matthew AUyn, and others of the prominent inhab-

itants. His sons, Richard and Thomas, had lots next to his. 
That part of Hartford called Lord's Hill took its name from this 
family. Mr. Henry Dutch Lord, of Boston, a recognized autho- 
ity, says : Thomas Lord, the first, of Hartford, was a merchant 
and mill owner, and that in the descriptions of the Burnham 
estate, Burnham mentions his half-interest in the mill with 
Thomas Lord. In these transactions Thomas Lord bears the 
prefix of "Mr." The date of his death is not known. Porter 
(in " Historical Notices of Hartford,") says: "he died early." 
The place of his burial is not known, but there is quite a number 
of Lord tombstones of descendants of his, in the early genera- 
tions, in the rear of the First Church, of Hartford. The names 
of Thomas Lord and his son Richard are inscribed on the granite 
monument in the old grave-yard of Hartford as prominent among 
the first settlers. His widow, Dorothy, died in 1675 at the age 
of eighty-six years, and her will, dated February 8, 1669, is now 
on file among the Probate Records, in the office of the Secretary 
of State at Hartford. 

As no will of ^Thomas' Lord is on record it maybe inferred 
that he died intestate, so that his widow had only her legal por- 
tion, dividing with her seven children. Her will speaks of 
" that litle estate the Lord liath lent me." Yet, besides dispos- 
ing of a " dwelling house and Barn " and a " Home lott," it 
devises a " lower lott in the North meadow," several acres 
constituting an " upper lott in the long meadow," together with 
" wood land that is allready layd out or to be layd unto me 
within the Bounds of Hartford," beside "Moveable estate and 
Cattell," in five portions, and various household-stuff distinctive 
of a gentlewoman to a considerable amount, including a "silver 
drinking bowl." The seal which Dorothy Lord afiixed to it,

It is said that the first "Medical License" 
granted in the New England colonies was 
issued to Doctor Lord, and read as follows: 

"Courte in Hartford, 30 June, 1652,

SANFORD FAMILY. 



iJOHN' SANFORD, son of Samuel and Elleanor Sanford, of 
Alford, Lincolnshire, England, sailed for New 
England in the ship "Lyon," Capt. Pierce, 
about the middle of August, 1631. On the same ship were John 
Eliot, the missionary to the Indians, John Winthrop, Jr., (after- 
ward the Governor of the colony), and others. 

They arrived out of Boston Harbor on November ?>, and, 
after two days, landed in the new world. Before the close of 
the year he was recorded as a member of the church. 

August 6, 1633, he was chosen to oversee the building of 
cai-t bridges over Stony and Muddy Rivers. 

On May 14, 1634, he was appointed to examine the condition 
of the ordnance. On September 3, 1634, he was chosen can- 
noneer for the Port of Boston, and for two years' service already 
rendered at said port and for one year to come he was allowed 
£20. On September 8, 1636, he was allowed £10 for service the 
year past, and on October 28, 1636, he was again appointed 
cannoneer, and also surveyor of the arms and ammunition. 
Salary £30 for himself and man. 

On November 2, 1637, he was discharged and allowed £13 
6s 8d for the year past. On November 20, 1637, he and others 
were ordered to deliver up all guns, pistols, swords, powder, 
shot, etc., because " The opinions and revelations of Mr. Wheel- 



THE SANFORD FAMILY. 39 

wright and Mrs. Hutchinson have seduced, and led into dangerous 
errors, many of the people here in New England. 

Being allowed to leave the colony they went to Portsmouth, 
Rhode Island, where on March 7, 1638, he and eighteen others 
signed the following compact: 

"We, whose names are underwritten, do hereby solemnly, in 
the presence of Jehovah, incorporate ourselves into a Bodie 
Politick, and, as he shall help, will submit our persons, lives and 
estates unto our Lord Jesus Christ, the King of Kings and Lord 
of Lords, and to all those perfect and most absolute laws of his, 
given us in his holy word of truth, to be guided and judged 
thereby." 

At a general meeting of the inhabitants, held May 13, 1638, 
it was ordered that the meeting-house should be set on the neck 
of land that goes over to the main island, where he and John 
Coggeshall shall lay it out. On May 20, 1638, he had six acres 
allotted him north of the great cove. On June 27, 1638, he and 
four others were appointed to repair highways. Was made 
Constable, 1640; Freeman, March 16, 1641; Lieutenant of Militia, 
1644 (R. L Colony Records, Vol. 1, p. 127); Assistant Governor, 
1647, 1648, 1649 (R. I. Colony Record, Vol. 1, pp. 148,216,336); 
President of Portsmouth and Newport, 1653 (R. I. Colony

THOMPSON FAMILY. 



1 WILLIAM! THOMPSON, Rev. There are few names more 
common among the early settlers of New 
England (says Thompson's History of Long 
Island, Vol. 2, pp. 425, 426) than that of Thompson. Reverend 
William Thompson was born in the year 1597; graduated at 
Brasenose College, Oxford, January 28, 1619; and came to New 
England in 1634. 

He first settled at what is now York Maine. In 1636 he 
removed to Dorchester, and on September 24, 1639, was ordained 
first pastor of Braintree, than called Mount W^allaston, during 
October, 1642, he was sent on a mission to Virginia, in company 
with Rev. Thomas Jones, of New Haven, Conn., and the Rev. 
John Knowles, of Watertown, Mass. 

It appears that soon after they arrived, the Grand Assembly 
of Virginia passed an act prohibiting the preaching of the 
doctrine of the Pilgrims, and ordering all those who would not 
conform to the Church of England, to leave the country by a 
certain day. 

In consequence of this act they could only address their 
people in private houses. The latter clause of the order was 
not carried into effect, on account of the trouble produced by 
the Indian massacre of April, 1643. Soon after this time these 



50 THE THOMPSON FAMILY. 

ministers, with many other persons, returned to New England. 
During Rev. Mr. Thompson's absence, his wife died, in January, 
1643, leaving a family of young children, who, says Governor 
Winthrop: — "were scattered, but well disposed of, among his 
godly friends." 

John, probably the eldest son, was placed in the Brewster 
family. Jonathan, supposed to be the second son, resided with 
his uncle James, of Woburn. James, born in Braintree, May 1, 
1640, settled in Billerica, Mass., where he died in 1732; and 
Benjamin, the youngest child, born, July 14, 1642, graduated at 
Harvard College, in 1662. 

The Rev. William Thompson is spoken of by Governor 
Winthrop as a very gracious and sincere man. He died, at 
Braintree, Mass., December 10, 1666.

fifty-five proprietors of Setawket (Brookhaven). He became, by 
repeated allottments of land, and by purchase, the owner of 
a large amount of real estate, which, on his death, was divided 
among his children. 

He resided near the Public Green, and was an upright and 
intelligent man, and held in high estimation by his fellow 
townsmen, who frequently elected him to responsible town offices. 
He died, October 14, 1688, leaving three sons. William, Anthony, 
Samuel, and several daughters, one of whom, Elizabeth, married 
Job Smith, son of Richard Smith, a patentee of Smithtown. His 
wife Hannah, died at Setawket, Long Island, October 4, 168*7.

52 THE THOMPSON FAMILY. 
*Elizabeth3, born ; m. Job Smith, son of Richard. 

Note — Thompson's History of Long Island, Vol. 2, p. 426, 
names the wife of i John 2 as Hannah, daughter of Jonathan 
Brewster, and grand-daughter of Elder William Brewster, of the 
Mayflower. The New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, 
Vol. 22, p. 35, and the Genealogy of the Strong Family, (by B. W. 
D wight), pp. 606-7, repeats the statement. This has been found to 
be an error. 

Miss Caulkins, in her history of New London, claims that Hannah 
Brewster, was the wife of Samuel Starr, of New London, and the 
statement is also made in the Genealogy of the Starr Family. 

In "The Mayflower Descendant," Vol. i, p. 226, (published by 
Mass. Society), is the following: on page 39, ist volume of New 
London Town Records, is this entry: " Samuel Starr married 
Hannah ye daughter of Jon'an Brewster, 23rd of December, 1664." 
This entry was made by Obadiah Bruen, who was town "recorder" 
at the time. Some years later Hannah Brewster's brother-in-law, 
Daniel Wetherell, was elected recorder, which office he held for 
many years. If this entry in the town records had been wrong, he 
would have noticed it. We are not dependent on this record alone 
for proof that Jonathan Brewster's daughter Hannah did not 
marry John Thompson. 

On page 7, volume 5, New I-ondon deeds, is recorded a conveyance 
from John Picket and Benjamin Brewster, to their sisters Grace 
Wetherell and Hannah Brewster, dated February 14, 1661-2. In 
this deed she is called Brewster by her brother and brother-in-law, 
six years after John Thompson is said to have married her. As she 
was living in New London in February, 1687-8, as Starr's widow, and 
was in full communion with the first church there at the time of Mr. 
Saltonstall's ordination, November 25, i6gi, it is certain that she was 
not even a second wife of John Thompson, who died October 14, 
1688, and whose wife Hannah, died at Brookhaven, October 4, 1687.

iWILLIAMi FELLOWS, was born in England, 1611. He came 
to New England, in the "Planter," in 1635, and

BERRY FAMILY. 



^ELISHAi BERRY, born probably about 1060, was living in 
East Greenwich, R. I., in 1690. The R. I. 
Vital Record, Vol. 5, p. 76, gives him three 
wives — first, Elizabeth; second, Sarah; third, Ellen. Where he 
came from is not known, but it is jjrobable that he was one of 
the children of Mr. Richard Berry, who was in Barnstable, 
Mass., about 1640; in Yarmouth, 1643; removed to Boston, where 
he lived with Mr, Thomas Hawkins in 1647, but went back to 
Yarmouth, married a wife by the name of Alice, and had eleven 
children born in Yarmouth. Richard died in Yarmouth in 1681. 

Freeman's History of Cape Cod, Vol. 2, p. 198, says: The 
record is worn and torn, and but partially reveals their names or 
dates. All that can be gathered is: John, born, March 29, 
1652; Elizabeth, March 5, 1650. It is known, however, that he 
had also sons, Richard, Samuel, Nathaniel, Joseph and also a 
daughter, Elizabeth, who married Josiah Jones, November 28, 
1677. Savage's Genealogical Dictionary, Vol. 1, p. 170, says: 

"John, born, March 29, 1652; one, July 11, 1654; Elizabeth, 
born, March 5, 1656; one, May 12, 1659; one, August 23, 1662; 
one, October 16, 1663; one, October 5, 1668; one, June, 1670; 
one, October, 1673; one, December 16, 1677. Of the eight names 
not mentioned, Joseph, who died September 7, 1681; Nathaniel,

who died February 1, 1694, were two, but the dates of their 
birth are not ascertained by the record." 

Elisha Berry was a Quaker, and probably removed from 
Massachusetts to Rhode Island, and was one of the unmentioned 
children of Richard Berry.

Note. — Dinah Spencer, wife of Elisha Berry, is undoubtedly a 
descendant of John Spencer, of Newport, and East Greenwich, but 
a careful examination of the Rhode Island Vital Records, and also 
Austin's Rhode Island Genealogical Dictionary, fails to reveal it. 
Through the worn condition of the original records, several Spencer 
births are given, where it has been found impossible to trace the 
name. One of these is probably that of the Dinah is question. 



SAUNDERS FAMILY. 



iTOBIASi SAUNDERS was in Taunton, Mass., in 1643, and 

before 1655 had removed to Newport, R. I., 

where he was made freeman, in that year. He 

had a quarter of a share in the division of Misquamicut

behalf of the town of Westerly, answered a letter from the 
Governor and Assembly of Connecticut, wherein complaint was 
made of encroachment by Westerly men upon Stonington lands. 
This fact they denied, closing as follows: "As for your advice 
to agree with these, our neighbors of Stonington, and the other 
gentlemen, we hope that your colony and ours will in the first 
place lovingly agree, and than we question not but there will be 
an agreement between us and our neighbors of Stonington and 
the rest of the gentlemen."

at which time he was a citizen of Stamford, 
Connecticut, and owned land in that town, then 
included in the New Haven Colony. He may have been in 
Fairfield, twenty-five miles nearer New Haven, having landed 
estate then on " Sascoe Neck," which he sold in 1653 to Thomas 
Barlowe, of Fairfield. The town of Fairfield (Un-quo-wa) was 
settled in 1639 by Lieutenant Governor Roger Ludlow, who 
went from Windsor with eight or ten families, and they were 
joined by others from Watertown and Concord, Massachusetts. 
Stamford (Rippowan) was settled in 1641 by a colony from 
Wethersfield. One of these settlers was John Jessup, who was 
a brother of Edward Jessup. 

Edward did not stay long in Stamford, but in 1652, when 
permission was obtained of Governor Peter Stuyvesant of the 
Dutch Colony of New Amsterdam, to establish an English settle- 
ment at the west end of Long Island, joined the party, and 
was one of the pioneers of Middleborough (Newtown). Land 
was purchased of the Indian proprietors in 1656, at one shilling 
an acre. The original price paid by each of the fifty-five, varied 
from two shillings to four pounds. Edward Jessup, with one 
other, paid the larger amount. 

The settlers of Middleborough were allowed the privilege of 



THE JESSUP FAMILY. 73 

nominating to the Dutch Governor and Council, six citizens for 
magistrates, three of whom were to be appointed. Jessup's 
name was on the first list given in 1652, but he was not appointed 
that year. He served in 1659, '60, '61, '62, and many entries 
are recorded in the records of the town court in his handwriting. 

Enmity and jealousy began between the Dutch and English 
settlers, and lasted for several years, and occasioned much 
trouble. A long and detailed account of this trouble is given 
in the Genealogy of the Jessup Family, by Mr. H. G. Jesup, 
but it is not thought wise to give them all in this volume (which 
is only intended to give certain lines of direct ancestry). 

Soon after the restoration of Charles II. to the English 
throne they were given a charter, and the English settlement 
was claimed as a part of the Colony of Connecticut ; and, after 
much vexation and trouble, it so became. Edward Jessup had 
obtained large tracts of land, and had received grants for the 
same from the King. 

In 1663 and 1664 he was magistrate of Westchester, and was 
a man of much influence and prominence through life. 

He died in the Autumn of 1666, between August 6, when his 
will was dated, and November 14, when it was proved. He was 
buried, doubtless, in the ancient cemetery at Hunt's Point, but 
no gravestone marks his resting place, nor that of his married 
daughter, Elizabeth Hunt. His will is now on record in the 
Surrogate's office in New York City (Vol. 1, pp. 31, 33), and 
is one of the earliest recorded in the English language. It was 
"proven out of session," by the Governor's special order, at 
Flushing, Long Island, November 14, 1666. 

His wife's name was Elizabeth . He put all of his 

estate into her hand, counselling her to bring up his two minor 



74 THE JESSUP FAMILY. 

children in the fear of God, and giving her as "overseers" four 
of his most trustworthy friends. His widow, Elizabeth, married, 
second, in 1669, Robert Beacham, of "Barkside," in Fairfield 
County, Connecticut (now Green's Farms, in town of Westport). 
She removed, with her two youngest children, and disposed of 
her property in West Farms and Newtown. 

Children. 

'Elizabeth^, born, , was the wife of Thomas Hunt, Jr.,

1EDWARD2, (Edwardi). 

Born, 1668, in Newtown (West Farms), New 
York, just before or after his father had crossed 
the East River to his new grant on the North Shore of Long 
Island. 

He was three years of age when his father died. He grew 
up, became a freeman in Fairfield, Connecticut, acquired property, 
built him a house, and married in 1692, when twenty-nine vears 
of age, Elizabeth Hyde, who was born August 23, 1669, and 
daughter of John Hyde (born, 1642), and Elizabeth, daughter of 
Richard Harvey, of Stratford. About 1V20 Edward^ removed 
from Green's Farms to Stamford, and lived there the remainder 
of his life. April 28, 1720, he purchased 125 acres in Stamford, 
and January 8, 1*724, bought a right in what were called the 
"sequestered lands," paying £69 3s 9d for the same. 



THE JESSUP FAMILY. 75 

He died in 1732, and, by his tombstone, was in the 70th 
year of his age. 

His will is recorded in Stamford, August 17, 1721, proved in 
Norwalk, January 5, 1732-3, and probated February 5, 1732-3. 
His son Joseph was named as sole executor. The inventory was 
£650, and is on file on probate records. His widow, Elizabeth, 
died in Stamford, October 2, 1749, in her 79th year. Her will 
was dated September 15, 1747. The personal inventory was 
£200.

^JONATHANS, (Edwari)2, EdwardI). 

Baptized August 3, llOl, in Fairfield, Connec- 
ticut. In 1*732 he was living in Greenwich, 
where he also died. His name appears on the list of first 
parish in the oldest settlement in the town of Greenwich as 
early as 1739. He was a farmer, and also a carpenter. 

His wife Sarah was said to have been much younger 

than he. Letters of administration were granted her August 2, 
1759, and estate distributed March 14, 1759-60. The inventory 
was £403 12s 9d. She married, second, Timothy Kuapp, of 
Greenwich, and died, aged ninety-three years. All her children 
were by her first marriage.

THE JESSUP FAMILY. 77 

Note. — At the time of their father's death, Nathaniel, Samuel, 
Silvanus and Phebe were minors. At the Stamford Probate Office 
there is now on file the bond of Jonathan Dibble (their uncle) as 
guardian of the last three. 

At a later date, the mother gives bond as guardian of her two 
children; Jonathan as guardian of Nathaniel; Amos as guardian 
of Samuel. There has been found trouble in tracing the complete 
record of the family, and, later, the families of the children. 

They all seem to have belonged to St. John's Episcopal Church 
at Stamford, which was nine miles from where they lived at Green- 
wich. Reverend Ebenezer Dibble was Rector, and was indirectly 
related to the family. 

The majority of the births and baptisms were only recorded on 
the Church Record, which is defective, especially so, during the 
time of the Revolutionary War, when all Episcopal Churches were 
"under the ban," and not popular, for they were obliged to pray 
(by their ritual) for "Our good King George the Third." The 
membership became divided, the large majority being loyal to the 
Colony, while some were also loyal to the King. 

It is no wonder that during these years of the War, and those 
immediately preceding and following, when the town was so busy 
with public and military affairs, and, as in this case, the Church 
" under a cloud," the record should be defective. 

Some facts, therefore, relating to these families have had to be 
drawn from " family history," but enough is known to make the 
connection between them both authentic and reliable. 



78 THE JESSUP FAMILY. 

2AMOS*,(Jonathan3,Edward2, Edward^). 

Born, May 1, 1736, in Greenwich, Connecticut. 
Married, ^ Elizabeth s, daughter of Thomas 
Studwell, of Greenwich. 

Records refer to him first in 1761, when, on February 14, he 
bought land in Greenwich of Joseph Husted for £47, "current 
money of tlie Province of New York." 

His name appears in "town list" from 1769 to 1774, showing 
that he was a town resident. On December 12, 1771, he pur- 
chased a homestead in the town, for which he paid £108 to 
Charles Mead, of the Manor of Courtland, in Westchester 
County, New York. In 1770 and 177 1, he bought land of Moses 
Smith. In October, 1784, he gave deed to Horton Reynolds. 

He suffered loss during the Revolutionary War, as there is 
mention in the town books of the sale of " the right of Amos 
Jessup, deceased, of £20 6s, lawful money, for losses sustained 
in time of war, and land granted for said losses, by General 
Assembly of State." The occasion of his loss was, probably, 
connected with his service in the war (see record of same at end 
of volume). He died about the middle of March, 1785, and 
administration was granted March 26, 1785, to Oliver Ferris 
"on the estate of Amos Jessup, late of Greenwich, deceased." 

On the 13th of March, 1790, Elizabeth Jessup, the widow, and 
Anthony Studwell, her brother, both of Greenwich, and heirs of 
their father, Thomas Studwell, of the same town, convey to 
Ebenezer Hubby all claim they have in their mother's dower in 
the father's estate, Mai'ch 30, 1790, for £75. Hubby conveys to 
Thomas Jessup, the son, certain lands with buildings, and in 
October, 1793, for £20, two acres additional. 

He lived and died in Greenwich, and raised a family of 



THE JESSUP FAMILY. 79 

children, but an examination of the town records in 1900 show 
that their births are not recorded. 

He, like the other members of his father's family, was a 
member of St. John's Episcopal Church of Stamford, and three 
of his children are recorded as being baptized there by Rev. 
Ebenezer Dibble, (Thomas, Amos, and Dimma). There were 
also two sons born later, one of whom was Samuel, born 
November 18, 1785, (posthumous), the birth date being recorded 
in the family bible. 

iRosALiNE^ (Jessup) HoLDEN, (^Samuel^), now living, says: 
"Father (5 Sajviuel^) had but one sister, Diodema; she married 
Anthony Studwell. My father had three brothers, Thomas, 
David, and Amos. David and Amos went into the army, (war 
of 1812), David died with yellow fever, and Amos was killed in 
the army." 

Family history also shows that ^Samuel's^ mother was a 
Studwell.

Samuel removed from Greenwich, Connecticut, into West- 
chester County, New York, and thence to Genoa, New York. 
He was a thrifty, progressive farmer, and built up two farms 
that were models in their way, and which showed the result of 
good husbandry. He had six children, all of whom were born 
in Greenwich, Connecticut.

STUDWELL FAMILY. 



1 THOMAS 1 STUDWELL, (Steedwell, Stedwell). 

Was an early settler in Greenwich, Conn. 
This town commenced to be settled shortly 
after it had been purchased from the Indians by Robert Feaks 
and Daniel Patrick. 

These purchasers violated their obligation to the Colony and 
placed themselves under the Dutch Governor of New York, then 
New Amsterdam. As a result, several of the settlers purchased 
tracts of land in other towns, and either temporarily or per- 
manently removed to their new purchases. Many names appear 
upon the records of several towns who really resided in Green- 
wich, but who were taxed in other places, and the records of 
whose families have been scattered, and many of them lost. 

Richard Crab had purchased large tracts of land from the 
Indians, and sold this land again, in smaller parcels. He had 
sold portions of his estate to Thomas Studwell, Peter Disbrow, 
John Coe, and others, October 6, 1656, they "freely yealded 
themselves" to the government of New Haven Colony, and came 
again under its rule (Record of New Haven Colony, Vol. 2, p. 
16). With Peter Disbrow and John Coe, Thomas Studwell 
bought the Island of Manussing on June 29, 1660, and resided 
there for some time. Thomas "Stedwell" signed the declara- 
tion of the inhabitants of Hastings, July 26, 1662, and also the 



THE STUDWELL FAMILY. 83 

letter to the Hartford Government, January 26, 1663. In 1667, 
he sold his house and home lot which he was possessed of in 
Rye, Westchester County, New York, near the Mill Brook, and 
went, with his son Joseph, to Stamford, Connecticut (Hist. 
Stamford, Conn., Huntington, p, 193), but appears to have settled 
himself at length in the town of Greenwich, where, in 1694-5, 
his real estate was rated at thirty pounds. (History of Green- 
wich, Mead, p. 79.) 

Children. 

* Joseph 2, born, . 

2John2, born, . Signed as a witness (son of Thomas)

Probably other children, but these two are 
all there seems to be any mention of. 



1 JOSEPHS (Thomas^). 

The date of his birth and the name of his 
wife his birth have not been learned. Joseph 
was with his father in Stamford in 1667, and in Greenwich in 
1694-5, when his real estate was rated at eighteen pounds. 
He soon after acquired lands in Rye on " Barton's Neck," in 
"Will's "purchase, and on " Byram's Ridge," in 1705, I7l7, 1722.

Note. — The birth of i Thomas 5 is furnished from town records 
of Greenwich, by Mr. C. P. Child, in Town Clerk's Office (1900). 
That he had the other two children is shown by the following, taken 
from Jessup Genealogy : " Amos Jessup, born, 1765, in Greenwich : 
m. Elizabeth, daughter ot Thomas Studwell, of Greenwich." * * * 
"On March 13, 1790, Elizabeth Jessup, widow, and Anthony Stud- 
well, her brother, both of Greenwich, and heirs of the late Thomas 
Studwell, convey to Ebenezer Hubby all claim they had in their 
mother's right of dower in their father's estate," etc. 



RUNDLE FAMILY. 



1 WILLIAM 1 RUNDLE came from England, but from what 
locality, or when, is not known. 

The actual settlement of Greenwich, Con- 
necticut was made about 1640, and east of the Myanos river, but 
about 1672, a number of persons, some of them living in town, 
and some from other colonies than Connecticut, piirchased 
Miosehasseky, from the few Indians yet living about the west 
part of the town. These purchasers were twenty-seven in num- 
ber, and styled the "twenty-seven proprietors of 16*72." Among 
these appears the name of William Rundle. They kept separate 
records of their own, and West Greenwich, (called by them 
"Horse Neck,") was entirely under their control. 

In 1688 the number of inhabitants was about three hundred, 
and the number of legal voters about fifty, and William Rundle 
was the only one recorded by the name of Rundle. It is probable 
that he had brothers, and that some of them followed him, and 
settled in Greenwich, for Rev. Henry Griswold Jesup says, in 
his Jessup genealogy, page 285, "Jeremiah Randall, with his 
brothers, came from England, and settled first at Greenwich, 
(name often there spelled Rundle)." In the "town list" in 
1694-5, are found several by the name of Rundle. 

In 1666 a school was first talked of, but not till 1695 was a 
schoolmaster spoken of, and a committee of four was appointed 
to hire one. On that committee was William Rundle. He

seems to have been called to occupy, from time to time 
numerous public positions in the town. He had two sons, 
and probably other children. The name of his wife is not 
spoken of in the records.

died in 1652,) and Elizabeth, his wife. 

Richard Hardy had a daughter Mary, born, April 30, 1659. In 
1683 he gave son Samuel a house and lot, and shortly after gave 
legacies to his daughters Elizabeth Parsons, Susanna Sherman, 
Sarah Close, Ruth Mead, and Mary Hardy.

6 NATHANIEL 3, (Samuel^, William^). 

Born, May 1, 1728, in Greenwich. Lived 
and died in Greenwich, and his family were 

born there. He had several children, but the records do not 

show his marriage or family. 

His grand-daughter, ^Hannah M.^ Rundle (^David^), now 

living, (1900), says: "my grand-father's name was Nathaniel, 



88 THE RUNDLE FAMILY. 

and he married Hannah Ferris. Beside my grand-father, there 
were other children, one of whom was a sister, who married 
David Gray, who lived in New York City, when I was a little 
girl, for I was there to visit them. My cousin ^ Nathaniel^ 
(^Lockwood^), was named for my grand-father." 

^Nathaniel^ served in the War of the American Revolution, 
in the same regiment as his son Nathaniel, Jr., although upon a 
separate expedition. (See record at end of volume.) 

"The Connecticut Men in the Revolution," also establishes 
the two generations, (Nathaniel, and Nathaniel, Jr.).

FERRIS FAMILY. 



1 JEFFREY! FERRIS was made freeman in Boston, Mass., in 
1635, freeman in Watertown, Mass., in 1635. 
He removed from Watertown, and was one of 
the first settlers of Wethersfield, Conn. He sold his lot of 
forty-five acres in Wethersfield to John Deming. He went to 
Stamford, Conn., with the first company from Wetliersfield, 
and is on the list of those who paid for the survey of Stamford, 
and on the first assignment of land was given ten acres. He 
had lived in Greenwich in 1656, for he was one of the eleven 
Greenwich men who petitioned to be accepted under the New 
Haven jurisdiction. His will is found in the probate records of 
Fairfield, Conn., dated January 6, 1664. He wills to the four 
boys he brought up, ten pounds sterlin-f apiece, if they lived with 
any of his children until they are eighteen, the money then to be 
put out for them until they are twenty-one. His will names 
wife Judy, son James, son Jonathan Lockwood, and daughter 
Mary Lockwood, son Peter, and three children, Joseph, and his 
two children. 

He had three wives. The name of the first in not known, 
but she died, July 31, 1658. He married, second, Susanna, widow 
of Robert Lockwood, and thus became step-father to his son-in- 
law, Lieut. Jonathan Lockwood. Susanna died, December 23, 



THE FERRIS FAMILY. 93 

1660. He married, third, Judy Bowers, wlio survived him. His 
will was dated January 6, 1664, he died in 1666. 

The name Ferris is from Leicestershire, House of Feriers, 
from Henry's son Gualchelme de Feriers, Master of the horse of 
the Duke of Normandy, to whom William the Conqueror gave 
large tracts of land in the three shires of Stafford, Derby and 
Leicester.

of his grand-mother, Hannah Ferris, (1900), says: "Hannah, the 
daughter of Stephen Ferris, was in her teens at the time her father 
was in the Revolutionary War. I have heard her state from time 
to time the eventful dash by which General Putman made his escape 
at Horse Neck (West Greenwich), Conn., as the British came 
dashing onward and sending the missiles of death after him."

1 ROBERT' LOCKWOOD came from Euorland, and settled at 

Watertown, Mass., where six of his ten 

children were born, and where their births are 

recorded. Was made freeman, March 9, 1636-7 (Mass. Rec, 

V. 1, p. 372). 

He was executor of the estate of Edmund Lockwood, supposed

Conn., where he died in 1658 (Bolton's History of Westchseter 
Co., N. Y., p. 108). Was made freeman of Conn., May 20, 1652

Lockwood, to be Sergeants, at Fairfield, (Conn. Col. Rec, V. 1, 
p. 299). The date of appointment as Sergeant of Fairfield, was 
May, 1657. 

He was recorded as settler of Fairfield, as early as 1641 
(N. E. H. & G. Reg., V. 7, p. 157). 

He left no will, but an inventory of his estate was made by 
Anthony Wilson and John Banks. They included quite a large 
number of items, and amounted to £464 13s. His wife's name 
was Susanna.

his sons were taxed £153 15s, in 1694-5. He made his will, 
November 22, 1692, and was called Senior. The plain blue-slate 
head-stone, which marks his grave, is well preserved, and bears 
the following inscription: 

He married Lady Ann 
Millington, from England, 
daughter of Lord Milling- 
ton. This lady came to this 
country in persuit of her 
lover, a British Army Officer. 
Failing to find him, she 
taught school, and subse- 
quently married, Gershom 
Lockwood, of Greenwich. 
In 1660 her parents sent 
her a large oak chest ingen- 
iously carved on the outside, 
and strongly built. Tradition says: ^^ It contamed /la/f a dus/ie/ 
of Guineas, and many fine silk dresses, etc." This identical chest 
was in 1888, at Mr. Samuel Ferris' home, in Greenwich, Conn. 
Lady Millington's grand-daughter, Ann Lockwood, married, 
Samuel Ferris, and his descendants have the chest. 

Ann Millington, died before 1690; for he married, second, at 
that time, Elizabeth Townsend, widow of Peter Wright. 

The children were by his first wife, and determined by his 
will and were as follows:
