PREFACE 



In giving this book, to the public the compiler realizes how in- 
complete it is in many respects, but as it is the first attempt to publish 
a genealogy of this family, he trusts the reader will pardon its short- 
comings. The data contained herein have been gathered almost en- 
tirely from original sources such as town, church, land, and private 
records. 

The compiler wishes to take this opportunity to thank the many 
persons who have assisted him in preparing this work. His thanks 
are especially due to Mr. George M. Curtis of Meriden, Conn., who 
has placed in his hands a mass of data, comprising the work of many 
years, and to whom he is indebted for almost all of the data relating to 
the Wallingford, Conn., branch of this family. 

The compiler of this book will be glad to receive corrections or 
additional data from any member of this family, and if another edition 
of this genealogy is published at a later date, such corrections will be 
made and all additional material will be used.

THE PROBABLE ENGLISH ANCESTRY OF THE CURTISS 
FAMILY OF STRATFORD, CONN. 



There came to New England in the ship " Lyon," which sailed 
from London, June 22, i6j2, William Curtiss and Thomas Ufford, 
both natives of Nazing, Essex County, England. Landing at Boston, 
N.E., on Sunday, Sept. 16, 1632, they proceeded to Roxbury, 
where John Eliot, the " Apostle to the Indians," who was the 
brother-in-law of William Curtiss, had settled the previous year. In 
the ship " Lyon," ' so Mr. Winthrop tells us, there came one hundred 
and twenty-three passengers, of whom fifty were children. These 
persons were all of the better class, were well educated and possessed 
a certain degree of wealth that enabled them to live in the enjoyment 
of comforts. 

On the records of Nazing, England," we find that William Curtiss 
was baptized Nov. 12, 1592, and married Sarah, daughter of Bennett 
Eliot, ot Nazing, Aug. 6, 161 8. The baptisms of his several children 
also appear on these records. William Curtiss died in Roxbury, N. E., 
Dec. 8, 1672, aged 81 years, and Sarah his widow, March 20, 1673, 
aged 73 years.' Most of the historians have supposed this William 
Curtiss to have been the husband of widow Elizabeth Curtiss, of Strat- 
ford, Conn., but my researches have led me to believe he was brother 
of her husband, who was John Curtiss. The Nazing records also show 
the following entries : 

John Curtis, baptized Sept. 15, 1577. 

John Curtyce married Elizabeth Hutchins, April 19, 1610; and 
the following baptisms, supposedly those of their children : 

John Curtis, Feb. 26, 16 14-15; William Curtis, June 21, 1618 ; 
and Thomas Curtis, March 12, 1619-20. 

John Curtis, aged 21, sailed with Thomas Heath, aged 23, in the 
ship " Safety," Aug. 10, 1635. This may have been the above son, 
as the name of Heath is found both in Nazing and in Roxbury.

John Curtis' of London, England, had his coat of arms confirmed 
May 9, 163 2, just forty-two days before William of Roxbury sailed 
for New England. In the visitation of London, in 1633, his name 
does not appear. In " A Note of ye Estates and Persons of the In- 
habitants of Rocksbury,"^ 1638-40, appears the name of John Corteis, 
having fifteen acres of land and with five persons in his family. No 
further mention of this family appears on the Roxbury records, but in 
1639 a John Curtis' was a resident of Wethersfield, Conn., and owned 
land in that town on what was then called " The North Road to the 
Great Meadow." Thomas Ufford, who left Roxbury in 1635, with 
William Pynchon, we also find in Wethersfield at this time. Rev. 
Thomas Hooker, the famous divine of Hartford, was a native of 
Morfield, Leicestershire, England. He was a Fellow of Emmanuel 
College about the same time as John Eliot, and Eliot assisted him in 
his school at Little Baddow, Essex. Through persecution Hooker 
left England and sought refuge in Holland. After a while he heard 
that some of his Essex friends were going to New England, and he 
speedily united with them and sailed in the " Griffin " from Downs in 
1633. It is therefore probable that when he settled in Hartford 
many of the Roxbury people, natives of Essex, joined him there. 

John Curtis left Wethersfield in 1640 for Cuphag (Stratford), and 
his name disappears, but we find the name of widow Elizabeth Curtiss 
and her two sons on the earliest records of Stratford. It is therefore 
probable that the father died soon after arriving at Stratford, or on the 
journey. Thomas Ufibrd left Wethersfield at about the same time and 
went to Milford, but a few years later we find him in Stratford where 
he, with his family, spent the remainder of his life. There has been a 
tradition in Stratford that the Ufford and Booth families had inter- 
married with the Curtiss before they left England, but this I have been 
unable to substantiate. Mr. Trumbull^ in his " History of Connecti- 
cut," in writing of the settlement of Stratford, says that " Mr. John 
and Mr. William Curtiss and Mr. Joseph Hawley were from Roxbury, 
and Mr. William Judson, and Mr. William Wilcoxson from Concord, 
in Massachusetts." " These were the first principal gentlemen in the 
town and church of Stratford." " A few years after the settlement com- 
menced, Mr. John Birdseye removed from Milford and became a man 
of eminence both in the town and church." " Mr. Adam Blackman 
who had been episcopally ordained in England, and a preacher of some 
note, first at Leicester and afterwards in Derbyshire, was their minister 
and one of the first planters. It is said that he was followed by a

number of the faithful into this country." " These doubtless collected 
about him in the infant settlement." Mr. Blakeman is supposed to 
have come to Stratford from Wethersfield, and as the house lot of 
widow Elizabeth Curtiss was near or adjoining that of Mr. Blakeman's, 
this family may have come to Stratford to be under his ministry. In 
the will of Elizabeth Curtiss," John Birdseye, Henry Wakelyn, and 
Joseph Hawley were appointed overseers. Of these Joseph Hawley 
came from Roxbury, N. E., and also came to this country in the ship 
" Planter," in 1635, "^^^^ Adam Blakeman, William Wilcoxson, and 
William Beardsley. William Curtiss's ^ family furnishes us with further 
proof of his having come from Wethersfield, Conn., and Nazing. He 
married for his second wife Sarah, daughter of Matthew Morris,' of 
Hartford, Conn., and widow of William Goodrich, of Wethersfield, 
Conn., and two of his daughters married into Wethersfield families — 
those of Rose and Welles. The latter perhaps was John Welles, son 
of Gov. Thomas Wells, as on the records John Welles calls John 
Curtiss uncle. 

The Curtiss family was from all accounts one of the most prom- 
inent among the first settlers of Stratford, and it has been claimed 
that they suggested naming the town Stratford after Stratford-on- 
Avon,"* England. If this be true it adds another proof towards the 
acceptance of the pedigree with the coat-of-arms,' for Makestoke and 
Hatton were but small hamlets and Stratford-on-x\von was the nearest 
town of any size. That the name of Curtiss was well known in 
Shakespeare's town is shown by the fact that that poet used it as one 
of the characters in "The Taming of the Shrew." William Beards- 
ley, Thomas Alsop, and Richard Booth are also supposed to have 
been natives of Stratford-on-Avon, England, and as the Earl of War- 
wick had letters patent* to that part of Connecticut, it is more than 
probable that many of the early settlers throughout that colony were 
from Warwickshire. 



found in Nazing, England. 
* There is also a town near Nazing, and now a part of London, called Stratford-on-Bow, and 1 hav 
found the name of Curtis on tombstones in the parish churchyard of that town.

THE CURTISS COAT OF ARMS 



Before going into the subject of the Curtiss coat of arms I feel 
that it will not be out of place to quote a portion of the report of the 
Committee on Heraldry of the New England Historic Genealogical 
Society, regarding the bearing of arms, — 

"As there is no person and no institution in the United States with 
authority to regulate the use of coats of arms, your Committee discourages 
their display in any way or form. 

" Prior to the Revolution, as subjects of a government recognizing heraldry, 
certain of the inhabitants were entitled to wear coats of arms ; but only such as 
were grantees of arms, or who could prove descent in the male line from an 
ancestor to whom arms were granted or confirmed by the Heralds. 

'"• Females did not regularly bear arms, but the daughter of an arms-bearing 
father could use the paternal coat in a lozenge. When she married, such arms 
did not descend to her children (except by special authority), unless she were 
an heiress marrying an armiger, and then only as a quartering of her husband's 
arms. 

" The mere fact that an individual possessed a painting of a coat of arms, 
used it upon plate, or as a bookplate or seal, or had it put upon his grave- 
stone, is not proof that he had a right to it. 

" Proof of right must either be found in the Herald's records or be estab- 
lished by authenticated pedigree direct from an armiger. 

" A coat of arms did not belong with a family name, but only to the 
particular family, bearing the name, to whose progenitor it had been granted or 
confirmed ; and it was as purely individual a piece of property as a homestead. 
Hence it was as ridiculous to assume arms without being able to prove the 
right, as it would now be to make use of a representation of the Washington 
mansion at Mt. Vernon, and claim it as having been the original property of 
one's family, unless bearing the name of Washington and being of the line of 
those who owned it." 

After the above, I hesitated to make any mention of coats of arms 
in this book, but as I have made a careful research on the subject, 1 
feel that the results of this work may help some future genealogist to 
learn more of the early history of the Curtiss family. 

The coat-of-arms on the title page of this book is claimed to be 
(xi) 



the one borne by the ancestor of the Stratford, Conn., branch of the 
Curtiss family. An ancient emblazonment on parchment has been in 
the possession of this branch of this family beyond any doubt for over 
one hundred and fifty years and is owned to-day by an elderly lady 
residing in Bridgeport, Conn. It is claimed this emblazonment was 
brought over to this country by the first ancestor, but this I have 
been unable to substantiate. On the reverse side of this parchment 
certain data relating to the Stratford and Roxbury members of the 
family have been written, supposedly in the handwriting of Joseph 
Curtiss, Town Clerk of Stratford, Conn., 1678-1728. 

The records of the College of Heraldry, in London, Eng., show 
that this coat-of-arms was confirmed to " John Curtis, of London, 
Gent., son of William Curtis, of Hatton in the County of Warwick, 
Gent., son of Eustace Curtiss, of Malestock, in the said County, 
Gent., son of William who was son and heir of John Curtis, of 
Malestock aforesaid, Gent., by Sir Richard St. George Clarencieux, 
the 9th of May, 1632,"' in the 8th year of the reign of King Charles L, 
and that this crest was granted at the same time. In the visitation of 
London, in 1633, the name of John Curtis does not appear, so it is 
probable that he left for New England soon after having these arms 
confirmed. 

For further proof of the above see page viii. 

The curious description of these arms on the records is as follows: 
" Azure a fesse dancette between three ducal crowns or," 
" Crest: A Lyon in his ppr. collers Issuing forth of his Collers Or 
and Azure supporting in his right pawe a Shield Azure & thereon a 
fess dancette Or Mantled gules doubled argent." 

A general search in the archives of the College of Heraldry, 
London, England, gives the following record of arms borne by 
persons of the Curtiss, Curtis, etc., name. The numbers and initials 
on the left are the reference numbers to those records.

lowing lines : 

" Who in this life fifty years did stand. 
And to East India did bear command ; 
Who in his lifetime kept not fast his door. 
And afterwards provided for the poor — 
Sixty pounds per annum for ever." 

This same person in 1669 bequeathed to the parish of Lime-

alternate years to be appropriated to the redemption of poor captives.^

John, and his name appears among the list of property owners 
of 1650. He was an original proprietor, of Stratford, Conn. 
(see frontispiece), and was a most prominent man. As early 
as 1650 he had attained the rank of sergeant, and represented 
Stratford at the General Court, almost continuously from 1667 
to 1686. May 9, 1672, liberty was granted by the General Court

Military Officer of Fairfield County, and Capt. William Curtiss 
his second." In August, 1672, Capt. William Curtiss was 
appointed by the General Court one of six commissioners, with

other vessels, arms, ammunition, provisions, carriages, or

guished himself for bravery in King Philip's War. October, 
1675, upon the report of the Indians being ready at Narragan- 
sett to attack Connecticut, Capt. William Curtiss was appointed 
to command those forces raised in Fairfield County, with power 
to appoint his inferior officers. In 1676 he was a commissioner 
of both Stratford and Woodbury. In May, 1676, he was 
chosen an Assistant, or member of the Governor's Council.

MEMORIAL OF BENJAMIN R. CURTIS 
(Prepared by R. Burnham Moffat) 

Benjamin Robbins Curtis, one of the youns^er members of the 
Association, was born at Plymouth, Massachusetts, on August 
13th, 1878. He was the only son of Benjamin Robbins Curtis, of 
Boston, and Mary Gardiner Horsford, his wife. His paternal 
grandfather, whose name he bore, was distinguished as a leader 
of the Massachusetts bar and earned his exalted reputation as a 
jurist during the few years he sat as a member of the Supreme 
Court of the United States, in ante-bellum days. His father, also 
of the same name, died in early manhood in 1891 ; but even then 
he had attained and graced the bench in Massachusetts, and had 
exhibited those qualities of intellect and judicial mindedness 
which, inherited from his father, he passed on to his son. Young 
Curtis, in whose memory I write, had scarcely turned the age of 
twenty-seven when he died ; and he had been a member of this 
bar but three years. Yet the ability to comprehend quickly the 
controlling difficulty in a legal problem, the power to distinguish 
between decisions that bore directly and those that seemed to 
but did not, and the gift of retaining for all time in his memory 
the principles decided as well as the names and references of the 
cases he studied, were his in a truly unusual degree. 

He graduated at Harvard with the class of '98, before he was 
twenty. Plis career in college was not that of a close, or even of 
an attentive student. Yet his choice of courses under the elective 
system that prevailed there, was characteristic of the mentality he 
displayed after graduation. Philosophy and literature were spe- 
cialized, and left their imprint on the power of logical thought 
which he possessed, and on his taste for good reading which he 
indulged, — and fortunately was able to indulge, — as he collected 
the valuable and well chosen library that he left at his death. 



le was a mat 



ifartiirpr nf wnnlpn ornnrls anri 



His preparation for Harvard was at St. Paul's School at Con- 
cord, which he entered at the age of twelve ; and after graduating 
at Harvard he studied at the Columbia Law School with the 
Class of 1901, but did not take a degree at that institution. While 
in the law school, he was for a few months in the office of Horn- 
blower, Byrne, Taylor & Miller; then he traveled for some time 
through Spain and Northern Africa. In the Fall of 1902 he 
came into my office and remained there until the Spring of 1905, 
when he took the managing clerkship in the office of Joline, Lar- 
kin & Rathbone. He died in Paris on the 26th of August, 1905, 
and was interred on October 6th following in Mt. Auburn Ceme- 
tery, Cambridge. 

Notwithstanding the disparity of years, our friendship was an 
intimate one. Yet it is not the loyalty of friendship, — rather, I 
believe, a just estimate of his worth, — which prompts me to 
record that he possessed those mental qualities which would have 
enabled him, had he lived to attain the same exalted rank in the 
profession as his illustrious grandfather had attained and which 
it is believed his father, too, would have attained had his life 
been spared. Mr. Curtis' early death was a shock to his many 
friends, and a distinct loss to this Association and to the profes- 
sion.
