The Scarritt Family
The family of Richard Scarritt of Branford, CT was documented in two books, The Scarritt Clan in America , printed in 1938 and 1948. While these books contain a great number of descendants, there were some lines that were missed. The following is a synopsis of some of the branches of Richardís family. I have a great deal more information on all branches of this family, and am anxious to hear from anyone who is a descendant of the CT Scarritts.
One son of Richardís was Jeremiah:
