RICHARD BALDWIN, who died in 1665 prior to the move to Newark [S5] , was associated with Edward Riggs Sr in establishing the Derby Plantation in CT.[S3] RICHARD BALDWIN's daughter SARAH BALDWIN married SAMUEL RIGGS, the middle son of EDWARD RIGGS SGT (SE lot G); Samuel remained in Derby after the rest of his family moved on to Newark. Her sister Elizabeth married ZACHARIAH BURWELL (SW lot G), and one of her other sisters Temperance married Nathan Burwell brother of EPHRAIM BURWELL (SW lot H) and of Zachariah.
JOHN BALDWIN Sr (SE lot L) was Richard's brother, and thus Sarah (Baldwin) Riggs's uncle. In 1653, John took as his second wife Mary daughter of OBADIAH BRUEN (NE lot H). John removed "to Newark NJ but came back to Milford".
JOHN BALDWIN Jr (SE lot N) was the eldest son of JOHN BALDWIN Sr (SE lot L), and thus Sarah (Baldwin) Riggs's cousin. In 1663 he had married Hannah daughter of OBADIAH BRUEN (NE lot H) "sister of the second wife of his father". Hannah "perhaps died soon, as he is said to have died on a voyage unmarried but it may be that her husband was another of the frequent Johns". Savage also refers to another John Baldwin of Milford, the eldest son of Nathaniel who after 1666 "perhaps soon removed to Newark"
BENJAMIN BALDWIN (NW lot J) was born 1642 the second son of Joseph, whose relationship to Richard and John Sr is not apparent from Savage. He married Hannah, sister of JONATHAN SARGEANT (NE lot P), apparently before removing to Newark.
THOMAS BLATCHLEY (Branford 5, no lot listed) "encouraged the removal of others to Newark NJ but did not go"; he was the father of AARON BLATCHLEY (NE lot L).
AARON BLATCHLEY (NE lot L) was the son of THOMAS BLATCHLEY (Branford 5, no lot listed). He married Mary Dod(d), the sister of DANIEL DOD (NW lot U) and SAMUEL DOD (NW lot T), either about 1660 (Savage's note on Mary Dodd's father Daniel) or in 1665 (Savage's note on Aaron Blatchley). Aaron afterwards married about 1686 Sarah, widow of ROBERT FOOTE of Branford. Sarah's son JOSEPH FOOTE married in 1690 the youngest daughter of JOHN JOHNSON (SW lot C).
JOHN BROWN Sr (SW lot E) was the father-in-law of JOSEPH RIGGS (SE lot G) who married John's daughter Hannah. He was, says Wallace in his note on Joseph Riggs [S3], one of the planters with Edward at Derby as well as at Newark.
JOHN BROWN Jr (SE lot V) was the son of JOHN BROWN Sr (SW lot E), and thus the brother-in-law of JOSEPH RIGGS (SE lot G).
Savage states that John was of the three children of JOHN BROWN Sr all baptised at the same time in 1649, so he was at least 17 when the Agreement was signed and may have been older. Savage quotes another child "John again, born 12July1655" (which might imply that the first John had died by then), but recent researchers state that this younger son was a Thomas Brown I would suggest that since christian names were often written in their abbreviated form, and the manuscript writing of the original documents sometimes difficult to decipher, 'Tho' may have been read as 'Jno'.
OBADIAH BRUEN (NE lot H) was the father of Mary, who in 1653 married JOHN BALDWIN Sr (SE lot L) as his second wife, and of Hannah, who in 1663 married JOHN BALDWIN Jr (SE lot N) "son of the husband of her sister".
Obadiah's son JOHN BRUEN, born 1646, moved with his parents to Newark and had three children by his wife Esther, according to Savage. However, he apparently also had a daughter Sarah born 1679, who married ABRAHAM KITCHELL, son of SAMUEL KITCHELL (NE lot C).[S62].
EPHRAIM BURWELL (SW lot H) and ZACHARIAH BURWELL (SW lot G) were brothers, sons of "the first John" (who had been one of the early planters of Milford). In 1663, Zachariah married Elizabeth Baldwin and Savage's note on him states that "from the great host of that name, I am unable to select a father for her". But his note on Richard Baldwin (see above), states that Elizabeth was Richard's daughter, baptised 1644. That being the case, the wives of ZACHARIAH BURWELL (SW lot G) and of SAMUEL RIGGS, the middle son of EDWARD RIGGS SGT (SE lot G), were sisters.
Elizabeth's sister Temperance married NATHAN BURWELL, the brother of Ephraim and Zachariah.
MATTHEW CAMFIELD (NW lot F) had married Sarah TREAT, sister of Capt.ROBERT TREAT (SE lot A & SW lot B).
SAMUEL CAMFIELD (SW lot Q) had been baptised in 1645 as the son of MATTHEW CAMFIELD (NW lot F) and was made a freeman in 1669.
EBENEZER CAMFIELD (Branford 13, no lot listed) may also havre been a son of MATTHEW CAMFIELD (NW lot F), since Matthew's son Ebenezer had been born in 1649, though Matthew is shown as having been a signatory from Milford whereas Ebenezer is shown as having been a signatory from Branford (Samuel was a non-signatory).
JASPER CRANE was the father of DELIVEpurple (or DELIVERANCE) CRANE (NW lot P), JOHN CRANE (NE lot O)) and AZARIAH CRANE (later SE lot A).[S28] [S29]
AZARIAH CRANE (later SE lot A) had married Mary the daughter of CAPT.ROBERT TREAT (originally SE lot A).[S28] [S29]
"At the drawing of Home Lots, Feb 6, 1667, Lot 49 fell to the senior Jasper Crane, No. 40 to Deliverance Crane, and No. 62 to John Crane, they being his two eldest sons." [S29]. Savage identifies Deliverance as Jasper's son but does not mention John.
A recent researcher has compiled a descendants chart of Jasper Crane [S63] which shows them marrying into the following families whose surnames appear in the List of Home Lots: BALDWIN, BRUEN, CAMP, CANFIELD, DODD, HUNTINGTON, JOHNSON, KITCHELL, LAWRENCE, LYON, PENNINGTON, PLUM, RICHARDS, SWAINE, TOMPKINS, TREAT, WARD, WHEELER.
Stephen DAVIS (NE lot M) was the father of JOHN DAVIS (NE lot R).
GEORGE DAY (SE lot E) had married MARY RIGGS, daughter of EDWARD RIGGS SGT (SE lot G) before removing to Newark, their first son having been born about 1665.[S3].
ROBERT DENISON (SE lot C) is probably the Robert Dennison who had been one of the early planters of Milford and who Wallace refers to as being one of those associated with EDWARD RIGGS SGT (SE lot G) in establishing the Derby Plantation in CT.[S3]
DANIEL DOD (NW lot U) and SAMUEL DOD (NW lot T) were brothers, whose sister Mary had married AARON BLATCHLEY (NE lot L), the son of THOMAS BLATCHLEY (Branford 5, lot not listed). Thomas failed to move to Newark, and so one of them may have taken over his Lot.
STEPHEN FREEMAN (SE lot J) had a house lot in Milford in 1646, "but did not become inhabitant until 1658, removed probably to Newark, NJ in few years ... and perhaps he came back to CT."
Martha, the daughter of EDWARD RIGGS SR (SE lot W) born about 1677, married an S. FREEMAN [S3]
SERGEANT RICHARD HARRISON (NW lot B) had sons SAMUEL HARRISON (SE lot U), Benjamin, JOHN HARRISON (presumably NE lot K) who died 1675 unmarried, Joseph, George and Daniel "and removed to Newark NJ where all except John, it is said, were heads of families.". Richard was probably the brother of Mary Harrison who married either THOMAS PIERSON Sr (NW lot I), or THOMAS PIERSON Jr (SE lot T).
JOHN HARRISON (NE lot K) was presumably the John who was one of the sons of SGT RICHARD HARRISON (NW lot B) and brother to SAMUEL HARRISON (SE lot U). However, that John died 1675 unmarried, and was not a head of family: that being the case it would be unusual for him to be allocated a Home Lot.
SAMUEL HARRISON (SE lot U) was one of the sons of SGT RICHARD HARRISON (NW lot B) and presumably brother to JOHN HARRISON (NE lot K).
THOMAS HUNTINGTON (NW lot K) married Hannah, daughter of Jasper Crane (NW lot H)
THOMAS JOHNSON (SE lot D) is the father of JOSEPH JOHNSON (SW lot L), who was born 1651.
JOHN JOHNSON (SW lot C), son of THOMAS JOHNSON (SE lot D), had 7 children, the last of whom married in 1690 Joseph Foote of Branford; Joseph was the son of Robert Foote of Branford, whose widow married AARON BLATCHLEY (NE lot L) in 1686.
ROBERT KITCHELL (NE lot F) was the father of SAMUEL KITCHELL (NE lot C). Robert "is called in history the benefactor of Newark".
SAMUEL KITCHELL (NE lot C) according to Savage married an Elizabeth Wakeman in 1657 at New Haven and had three children by 1661. She must have died before Samuel moved to Newark because by then he had married Grace Pierson, daughter of Rev. ABRAHAM PIERSON SR (SE lot B) [S62]. Samuel's son ABRAHAM KITCHELL, born 1679, married Sarah BRUEN, grand-daughter of OBADIAH BRUEN (NE lot H).
Savage does not refer to any Francis LINLE or LINDSLEY (SW lot S), but does mention a John LINSLEY who "removed long before 1667 to
Branford, when John jr. was there"
Mary, the daughter of EDWARD RIGGS SR (SE lot W) born about 1666, married a JOSEPH LINDSLEY [S3]
HENRY LYON (SW lot O) was probably the person of that name in Milford 1646 and who married in Fairfield 1652, but his relationship to SAMUEL LYON (SE lot S) and/or THOMAS L LYON (SW lot K), if any, is not stated by Savage. Neither does Savage state the relationship, if any, between SAMUEL LYON and THOMAS L LYON .
Elizabeth, the daughter of EDWARD RIGGS SR (SE lot W) born about 1678, married a JOHN LYON [S3]
THOMAS MORRIS (Milford 32, no lot listed) is the father of JOHN MORRIS (NW lot D, listed as Home Lot 32 'in 1688'). Thomas died in 1673, Savage implying that he died in New Haven. If so, either he left Newark and returned to New Haven or it has been said elsewhere that it is possible that the original records read 'John' instead of 'Thomas', and that Thomas never left Connecticut [S57]. But Savage also states that his son John of New Haven married 3 times, fathepurple children up until 1687, and died in 1718 (again, by not mentioning Newark, implying all these events were in New Haven).
Thomas, the son of EDWARD RIGGS JR born 1701, married a EUNICE MORRIS, and Thomas's sister Mary, born about 1707 married a DANIEL MORRIS.[S3]
JEREMIAH PECK (NE lot G) married 12NOV1656 Joanna daughter of ROBERT KITCHELL (NE lot F)
EPHRAIM PENNINGTON (SE lot Q) was the brother of Mary, who had married 12APR1666 JONATHAN TOMPKINS (SE lot P).
REV. ABRAHAM PIERSON Sr (SE lot B), of Trinity College Cambridge, became minister in Lynn Nov1640 "to go to settlement at Southampton LI, thence about 1647 went to Branford, and thence in the autumn of 1667, with a part to his congregation to Newark NJ. See his letter to John Winthrop, 3 Mass. Hist. Col. X. 69 and 84.". His daughter Grace married SAMUEL KITCHELL (NE lot C) [S62].
REV. ABRAHAM PIERSON Jr (NW lot G), was one of the sons of ABRAHAM PIERSON Sr (SE lot B) and "had been ordained as colleague(?), with his father at Newark" 4MCH1672. He left Newark in 1692 for CT and "in 1701, was made the first head of Yale college and served until he died 5MAY1707".
THOMAS PIERSON Sr (NW lot I) "was probably brother possibly nephew" of REV. ABRAHAM PIERSON Sr (SE lot B); "married 27NOV1662 Mary daughter of Richard Harrison", probably RICHARD HARRISON (NW lot B), "removed to Newark and died there. He swore allegiance to the Dutch in 1673." However Savage also states that THOMAS PIERSON Jr "married Mary Harrison".
THOMAS PIERSON Jr (SE lot T) was the son of ABRAHAM PIERSON Sr (SE lot B) and was therefore brother to ABRAHAM PIERSON Jr (NW lot G); he "married Mary Harrison, went to Newark from Branford with his father, was called junior was in good esteem, but was dead before 1684". However Savage also states that THOMAS PIERSON Sr married "Mary daughter of Richard Harrison".
Elizabeth, born about 1719 the daughter of JAMES RIGGS (who in turn was born about 1664 the son of EDWARD RIGGS SR (SE lot W)), married a BETHUEL PIERSON [S3]
SAMUEL PLUM (NE lot N) had the following children "Elizabeth b. 6JAN1650, Mary 1APR1653, Samuel 2MAY1654, John 28OCT1657, Dorothy 26MAY1660, Josiah 3AUG1662 and Joshua 11MCH1665".
Joseph, the son of EDWARD RIGGS JR born about 1703, married a JANE PLUMB [S3]
LIEUTENANT SAMUEL ROSE (NW lot R) was the brother of ELIZABETH ROSE, the probable wife of EDWARD RIGGS SGT (SE lot G).
JONATHAN SARGEANT (NE lot P) was the brother of Hannah, who had married BENJAMIN BALDWIN (NW lot J). Jonathan and Hannah were two of the four children of Jonathan Sargent Sr of Branford, who were all baptised at once 10AUG1651, "some it may be adult".
LIEUTENANT SAMUEL SWAINE (NW lot A), who was a representative in Branford 1663 "as friend of Rev. Mr. Pierson, went with first settlers to Newark NJ and was representative in the first assembly"; one of his daughters Elizabeth married JOSIAH WARD (NE lot D), and another of his daughters Christian (born 1659) married a Nathaniel Ward, probably the son of JOHN WARD Sr (NW lot E).[S57]<
MARTIN TICHENOR (SE lot I) was probably the Martin Tichenor of New Haven who married 1651 and had 7 children, one of whom Daniel was born 1656. However, Martin's relationship to DANIEL TICHENOR (Milford 17. no lot listed) cannot be confirmed, since Martin's son Daniel would have been only 10 when the Founding Agreement was signed, though the view has been expressed to me by one researcher that that was not impossible because the Agreement was not a legal document as such.
DEACON MICHA or MICHAEL TOMPKINS (SE lot O) had been one of the early planters of Milford. He was the father of JONATHAN TOMPKINS (SE lot P) baptised 1643, and SETH TOMPKINS (SE lot R) born 1649. Jonathan's wife Mary was the sister of EPHRAIM PENNINGTON (SE lot Q).
CAPTAIN ROBERT TREAT (SE lot A), who returned to Connecticut where he subsequently served two long terms as Governor, was the father of JOHN TREAT (SW lot M) and Capt.Treat's daughter Mary married AZARIAH CRANE (later SE lot A).[S20] [S21]
Robert's sister Sarah married MATTHEW CAMFIELD (NW lot F), who was the father of SAMUEL CAMFIELD (SW lot Q) and probably of EBENEZER CAMFIELD (Branford 13, no lot listed).
DEACON LAWRENCE WARD (NE lot A) was the brother of George Ward and therefore the uncle of JOHN WARD JR (NW lot N) [S57]. Lawrence "removed to Branford 1646, was brother of George of the same, in 1661 was employed by the government of New Haven to search for the Regicides, Whalley and Goffe, at Milford, where it was probably known they were not to be seen; representative 1665 and 6, after which he removed to NJ and died 1671 at Newark".
JOHN WARD Jr (NW lot N), the turner, is said to be the nephew of LAWRENCE WARD (NE lot A).[S57] A John Ward drew a lot at Branford in 1663, and "in 1665, united with the other John and many others in projected removal to NJ" It is assumed this refers to JOHN WARD Jr rather than JOHN WARD Sr (NW lot E)
JOHN WARD Sr (NW lot E) is presumably Sereant John Ward of Branford who "was representative 1666, may have been there many years and one of the signers of the new plantation and church covenant Jan1668"; his six children included 3 sons - John born 1650, Nathaniel, and Josiah born 1661; "he removed soon after to NJ".
Nathaniel, John's son, was probably the NATHANIEL WARD who married Christian, daughter of LIEUT. SAMUEL SWAINE (NW lot A).
JOSIAH WARD (NE lot D), referpurple to by Savage as Joshiah, drew a lot at Branford in 1660, "and perhaps was son of George of the same". Thus Joshiah perhaps was a nephew of LAWRENCE WARD (NE lot A), George's brother. Josiah married Elizabeth, daughter of LIEUT. SAMUEL SWAINE (NW lot A).
NATHANIEL WHEELER (SE lot F) was the son of Thomas Wheeler, who had been one of the early planters of Milford and who later "owned much estate in Derby". Nathaniel married 27Jne1665 "Esther, daughter I presume, of Henry Botsford, and he removed to Newark NJ as did her younger sister Ruth, who married John Baldwin" The reference to Ruth marrying John Baldwin is also made in Savage's note on Henry Botsford (who had also been one of the early planters of Milford), but no record of it can be found under any of Savage's notes on the many John Baldwins.
