Notes for Deborah Dayton:

"Jacobus quotes from obituary of Deborah (Dayton) Mansfield, Connecticut Journal, 3 Jun 1817: If the uniform practice of industry, prudence, fidelity and benevolence, springing from vital piety, deserves the esteem of fellow mortals, let the memory of the deceased be regarded. She was an uncommon woman in her day, stout and robust in form, of strong, well balanced mind, of excellent judgment, and a vein of pleasant humor. Intelligent people from a distance sought her society to enjoy her original, independent and shrewd remarks. She was familiar with the Bible, with writings of Flavel, Baxter, Edwards and Bellamy; had seen and conversed with Washington, and had heard Whitfield preach. She bore her long illness of nearly five years with patient resignation. In answer to an inquiry once put to her by the Rev. Dr. Mason, she replied: "Having through divine grace been able to resist the attacks of the adversary for nearly sixty years, I shall not be left to fall into his hands at last, but feel sure of victory through the crucified, risen, reigning and all conquering Redeemer."

        17.  Medlin/ Madeleine/Madlin, born 1624; died 1664.

Notes for Samuel Dayton:

Or, did Samuel die at Brookhaven, Long Island, New York?

There is some belief that Wilhemina and Medlen were probably same person - just an aka.

"I am very curious about the Indian woman. In my records I have Samuel Dayton marrying three times:

1. date? Medlen (Madeline)

2. 14 May 1666 Mary Dingle

3. about 1669 Elizabeth (Harvey)

Beardsley, widow of Tom Beardsley

When was he supposed to have been married to Wilhelmina?? Perhaps he was! I am curious. Thanks."

Roz says born in Long Island, New York

" Occupation: Cordwainer.

In 1645 Samuel was in New Haven with his father. He lived briefly in Flushing, LI, before he settled in Southampton, where, on 6 May 1648, the town "ordered that Samuel Dayton shall be accepted as an Inhabitant, & hath A fifty pound lot granted unto him provided the said Samuel (being a stranger to us) we are of good approbation in ye place where he last lived at Flushing, and do demeane himself well heare for ye time of approbation namely six months next to come."

Several accounts of the early Daytons mention a fourth wife "Wilhemina," by tradition an Indian, but Jacobus could not find evidence for her."

"On 12 Sep 1653, Samuel's wife, not named, was sued for slander by Thomas Vail for £40, and four days later a jury gave the plaintiff £3 damage with cost of Court."

source: "Donald Lines Jacobus and Arthur Bliss Dayton, The Early Daytons and Descendants of Henry, Jr., New Haven Colony Historical Soc., 1858."

Notes for Medlin/ Madeleine/Madlin:

"or was she Medlen Harcre (Harker)?"

*

"Information from the Mormon Church computerized files is that Medlen was a Montauk Indian from Long Island. Samuel & his father Ralph were interpreters to the Indians. Medlen was also known as Wilhelmina, probably a Christian name bestowed on her by the Dutch settlers who were prevalent in the area in the 1630's. Samuel and Medlen had 10 children, one of whom drowned in long island Sound at about the age of 12.  The Montauk tribe is now extinct".

Roz says: she was a Montauk Indian from LI, born abt 1650. Maybe also called Wilhelmina.

Notes for Christopher Todd:

reference: "Parish Register of Pontrefact", Vol. 122, pg. 56

Christopher was in New Haven in 1644 and took the oath of fidelity there.  In 1681 he was the miller.  His will, dated 1656, notes his mill, bakehouse and lands; and the estate inventoried at 985 pounds.  His name appears frequently in the division of land but he did not have much to do with public affairs.

See:  "The Todd Family in America or the Descendants of Christopher Todd 1637 - 1919", compiled by John Edwards Todd, D. D. and edited by George Iru Todd.

Diana Thornton notes: "The first known instance of the name Todd, is noted in the Normandy region of France in the 10th century. It is believed that the family in England originated from there, arriving first in Scotland, the highland region. As this area was during that time under the rule of predecessors of William the Conqueror, it is possible they settled there at the same time. They appear in the Yorkshire area of England in the 11th century, abt. the time of William's arrival.  The name means fox, or someone with the looks or characteristics attributed to a fox.  Some forms include Tod, Todman, Todt, Todte, Todde, Todcastle, Todenham, Todlebru, Dodd, and, of course, Fox.

     There was a market gardener in Middlesex, brought before the magistrate for not having the words "taxed cart", his name or residence printed on his cart. He insisted that he had complied and had the judge inspect his cart which had inscribed: " A Most Odd Act on a Taxed Cart", Amost Todd, Acton, a Taxed Cart.

     John Todde was high sheriff of York in 1390, sir William in 1477 and was execher to the king and Lord mayor ten years later. He rebuilt the walls of the city with his own money after the war that had raged there. He was knighted by the king as well. Having no mail heirs, he passed his heritage on to his nephews, from whom our family of Todds descend. I don't know what his brother's name was. There were two inscriptions on the walls of York described by Leland: "Under a piece of indifferent sculpture of a senator in his robes and a woman kneeling by him. 'A. Dom. M. CCCC. L.XXXXVII. Sir William Tod mair jou-ates some tyme was schyriffe did this cost himself.' Near to this on a table under the city's arks, is "A Domini M. CCCC.L. XXXVII. Sir William Tod, KNight L. ... Mayre this wal was mayde in his dayes Lx yerds."

     One eminent Yorkshire Todd was Rev. Robert Todd, a dissenting minister of Leeds. During the great plague he "preached repeatedly and impressively on Heze-

kiah's boil." There was another Sir William who was high sheriff under Charles I. In 1642 Thomas Todd was held in an inquisition into the death of Sir Richard Elleher, knt. He lived at Tranby Park and possessed the same arms as the Pontefract Todds.

     There are records of a Reginald Todd, freeman of York and assumed to be the father of William I of Pontefract.Some of the parish records for this family are:

Sept. the 24 dai Wyll Todd and Isabell Rogerson were married

June the 29 dai Wyll ye sone of Wyll Todd was baptized

October the 18 dai John ye sone of Wyll Todd was baptized

July the 22 dai John Warde and Isabell Bruster were married

November ye 29 dai Katherine ye daughter of John Warde was baptized

May the 22 dai Willm Todde and Katherine Ward were married

1614 October the 15 dai Mary the daughter of Wm Todde was baptized

1617 January the 12th day Xrofor the sone of Willn. Todde was baptized

1617 May the 8th day Willm Todd was buried.

William II died in a duel less than four months after the birth of his son Christopher. What the duel was about or what occurred to his mother is not known. His sister and her husband and his wife's sister and her husband traveled to the colonies at the same time. It has been noted the William I died the same day as II, but it is not known at the present if this is the case or the records were confused. Christopher was married to Grace Middlebrook, dau. of Michael Middlebrook of Hold Mills (Actually thought to be Olds Mills, the mix-up attributed to the dialectic accent of the old woman who gave the information.) He was a man of substance as he was called Mr. which denoted a higher position.

     It was originally postulated by some who have little knowledge of the customs of the day that because Christopher Todd signed with his mark that he was of a lower class. This was not true in that day. Many raised in the upper classes, and his arms indicate this was the case, did not know how to read or write, they had others to do that for them and it was not considered necessary unless you were a younger son who would not stand to inherit and were going into the ministry, or being apprenticed out to a learn a trade or serve a person of the higher class, as was expected of younger sons in that day.

     Christopher sailed to the colonies in 1637 on the Hector with a group led by Theophilus Eaton and John Davenport. Only those who could contribute financially to the establishment of the colony was allowed to accompany this group, also they had to be married. Christopher and his wife were two of the youngest on the ship, most being in their forties. He was a miller, baker and farmer in the colony of New Haven which they helped to establish in 1638. When he died in 1686 his left a considerable estate, including a mill at the end of Mill Road, later the site of Whitney's gun factory. His will was considered a model for sense and wisdom. He was not active in public affairs except to serve on the general court and to be a viewer of fences, considered a position of high trust and only a few got the privilege. Other than that he kept a low profile (perhaps influenced by the factors around his father's death). He did not hold one of the more important seats in the meeting hall, but his wife did, so it appears this may have been more a matter of choice or because of his reluctance to be very actively involved. When he died his home passed to his son and remained in the family for abt. 100 years. He amassed quite a bit of property, some of which was donated to Yale College at it's creation. Many Todds have graduated from Yale. (Wouldn't they be appalled to see what it has become now.) The children of Christopher and Grace were:

"John, b 2 Dec. 1642; m Sarah Gilbert, dau. of Matthew (one of the seven pillars of the church), then Sarah Blakeman, dau of James and Miriam.

Samuel, b 20 Apr.1645; d Apr. 1714, m 26 Nov. 1668 Mary Bradley, dau. of William and Alice. He inherited the bakery and mill.

Mercy, bpt 16 Sept. 1647, d 8 Apr. 1714; m John Bassett

Grace, bpt 15 Dec. 1650. ; m 2 Mar. 1668-9 to Richard Mattock. He deserted her soon after the marriage, however. She was mentally unsound and her father had provided for her in his will as she could not care for herself. At age 13 she was called before the general court and sentenced to be whipped for improprieties of conduct.

Michael, b 18 June 1653, d 1712; m Elizabeth Brown, dau. Eleazer and Sarah (Buckley) Brown. She married in 1715 Lt. Samuel Street, then Capt. John Merriman.

Mary, b 18 Feb. 1655, d 1 May 1676; m 19 Aug. 1668 Isaac Turner, son of Capt. Nathanial Turner who died on the Phantom Ship and was the right arm of the colony.

 

Michael is the son from whom you descend. It can be assumed that he was a businessman, as his brother John inherited the farms. Michael's male heirs were also businessmen of some note. It was his oldest daughter, Elizabeth who married Isaac Dayton. She was born 12 Feb. 1690.

This family became very large, with many persons of note who descended from it. In instance after instance, descendents are described as honest, honorable, upright, straightforward, etc.

This is the family crest and arms. The motto, Opertet Vivere, means We Shall Persist, or persevere. The border is green, the foxes, the cap, the mantle are red, or fox color. The middle of the shield was described as silver, but is depicted in white, as silver faded too easily. the cap is upturned in ermine. The helmet is either that of an esquire or knight, it is hard to tell if it is grilled, this indicating a knight."

Roz says born 1619.

Christopher Todd. Born ca 1617 in York, England. Christopher was baptized in Pontefract, York on 11 Jan 1617. Christopher died on 23 Apr 1686.

"His allotment was a third seat. He continually added to his real estate. In 1650 he bought 1 1/2 acres on Elm Street in the Aristocratic "London Quarter" known as the "Blue Meeting House Lot" and it remained in the family for 100 years. He was a bright level headed man without much education. His lot in the London Quarter was purchased from Jasper Crane. A part of this lot is where St. Thomas Church stands on Elm Street. He bought a grist mill called "Yodds Mill" for many years. It was on the site of Whitney's Gun Factory of Whitneyville, a northern suburb of New Haven, Conn."

Roz has alternate spelling original Deighton. Roz has born 1598, England, died 9/22/1658 New York, Long Island

"Occupation: shoemaker.

Ralph, was of Ashford, Kent, England, when he married Alice, and remained there for at least twenty years before coming to New England. He was probably not in New Haven in 1639, but he drew his lot for the small lots on the bank side and by the west dreek on 17 Mar 1641/2. He took the oath of fidelity 5 Aug 1647. By 1650 he settled in East Hampton, Long Island. There he was appointed agent to the Connecticut Colony in 1651. He was also chosen for constable 7 Oct 1651. Not long before his death Ralph moved from East Hampton with his son Samuel to Southampton, where his will was recorded, 25 Jul 1658, settling at North Sea, then called Northampton, and leaving his son Robert on the East Hampton realty which he had conveyed to him in 1655."

about 1656 Ralph second married Mary [Haines].

"Ralph and his two young sons, Samuel and Robert, possibly with his brothers Thomas and Nicholas, were the first of the name to land on these shores, arriving in Boston in 1636. Ralph was a widower at the time, his wife Agnes, daughter of Henry POOL, having died in London a few years before. One authority thinks that Ralph had lived in Bedfordshire a few years previously to his departure for America.

Some confusion arises in the family records at this point. One chronicler of the Dayton family says that a Ralph DAYTON (it is spelled first DRAYTON and later DAYTON in the record), of Ashford, County Kent, accompanied by two sons, Samuel and Robert, and a daughter Alice, journeyed to America at about the same time as the above-mentioned Ralph of London. This Ralph of Kent was the husband of Alice TRITTON, a widow, and in addition to Samuel, Robert, and Alice, he had issue by her of a son Ralph and a daughter Ellen. Neither Ralph's wife, Alice, nor his daughter, Ellen is mentioned as making the voyage to America, and it is stated that the eldest son, Ralph, remained in England. That this Ralph of Kent was identical with Ralph of London seems likely for only one Ralph DEIGHTON or DAYTON appears hereafter in the records.

In 1639 this Ralph moved with his sons, Robert and Samuel, to New Haven, Connecticut. Ralph is listed as a signer of the Fundamental Agreement and Covenant of Habitancy, the original governing instrument of this town."

Mary was the widow of James Haines, of Southold, Long Island

        "Unfortunately, your lineage from Ralph backwards has never been proven, and cannot be relied upon by any serious genealogy. The source of this erroneous infromation is the Dayton book written be Laura Fessendon Dayton in the early 1900's. Her otherwise well written account of the Dayton's does not provide as much as one document, proof or source. The first known American citing of Ralph is in the New haven Colony in 1639 where he was a signer of the New Haven Compact. In order for Fessenden's genealogy to work, our Ralph would have had to immigrate to Boston and would have had to have been from London, England. Our Ralph does neither. No one has ever produced the document or ship log proving his port of entry through Boston. I truly wish that Fessenden's genealogy were true because I would love to claim a Dayton pedigree dating from the 1200's. Please prove it to me in some more reliable means than the Fessenden book."

"Because Ralph Dayton's wife, Alice, had no seating in the meeting house allotment of 1647, it does not mean she was dead. It is known that her daughter, Alice (Dayton) Baker did not join the church at Milford, Conn. and her son, Robert, refused to pay the minister's tax in East Hampton, NY in 1669. So Alice was probably alive but not a church member. If Ralph Dayton's first wife were dead by 1647, he had another wife than those listed in the first paragraph as he is known to have had a wife in 1655."

"When I was in York, England several years ago, I visited the village of Deighton and the original site of Deighton Manor with the remains of a moat around it.. In researching the local library, I found the history of Sir Walter de Dyghton who had the same Coat of Arms as the Deighton lineage. The Dyghton family reportedly took their name from the same village of Deighton about four kilometers from York. Sir Walter Dyghton was one of the early Crusaders and was born about 1130 a.d. He was the Knight Preceptor of the Knights Templar Prefectory of York. It would be interesting to see a tie in with Dyghton and de Deighton."          Don Dayton - posted 12/3/2000

"Dear Don and other Dayton researchers - I'm a descendant of Isaac Dayton, Sr. and Jr., and have been using the online LDS files to rough out the following, which indicates a connection through William Deighton's mother, Elizabeth Copley, back to the Fisher Kings of Scotland, and also another Charlemagne/Royalty connection through Ada de Warenne, mother of William "the Lion" King of Scotland. Please advise me of any known problems or corrections. As always, beware of the LDS information, as it is often incorrect or unverified, though it does give us a place to start.

Here goes: upline from the immigrant Ralph:

Ralph Dayton m. Alice Goldhatch (Mrs. Tritton). Ralph was son of William Deighton and Agnes Green.  William was son of Robert Deighton and Elizabeth Copley. Elizabeth was the daughter of John "of Hotham" Copley and Margaret Stapleton. Margaret was the daughter of Bryan Stapleton and Jane Thirkeld. Jane was the daughter of Lancelot Thirkeld and Margaret Bromflete, Baroness Clifford (widow). Margaret was the daughter of Henry Bromflete and Eleanor Fitzhugh. Eleanor was the daughter of Henry Fitzhugh and Elizabeth Grey. Henry was the son of Henry Fitzhugh or Fitzhenry and Jane (Joan) Le Scrope. Jane was the daughter of Henry Le Scrope and Joan (Agnes)_____. Henry was the son of Geoffrey Le Scrope and Ivetta De Ros.

Ivetta De Ros was the daughter of William De Ros and Eustace Fitzhugh. William was the son of William De Ross, Sr. and Lucia Fitzpiers. William, Sr. was the son of Robert de Ross, second husband of Isabel, princess of Scotland. Isabel was the daughter of William "the Lion" King of Scotland and either: Miss Avenel, or Ermengarde de Beaumont. With William, we are now in the Scots royalty lineage, which are sometimes called the Stewarts/Stuarts, or the Fisher Kings. William de Ross, Jr. was one of 12 claimants to the throne in Scotland in 1291, according to a website I looked at. William "the Lion" was the son of Henry I and Ada de Warenne - follow her ancestry on LDS if you're interested in more royal ancestors. Henry was the son of David I, "the Saint", King of Scotland and Matilda (Maud) Huntington. David was the son of Malcolm III, "Ceanmor", or Longneck, and (Saint) Margaret "Atheling", who is a descendant of King Alfred of Mercia. You can read about her online in the Catholic Encyclopedia. She grew up in Hungary and brought European court manners and learning to Scotland, as well as fostering religion, bringing the Benedictines to Scotland. She was Malcolm's second wife. Malcolm was the son of Duncan I "the Gracious" and Sibyl Fitzsiward, elsewhere called Sibylla Bearsson. I haven't bothered with all the details since this is the Dayton genforum.

Ralph Dayton, the immigrant ancestor, was born in England in 1588, probably in County Kent. Although his parentage is unclear, he was described as "of Ashford," a town in Kent, in 1617 when he married.

He married ALICE-1 (GOLDHATCH) TRITTON, the widow of Daniel Tritton, on 16 June 1617, at Ashford. Alice Goldhatch married first, at Ashford, Daniel Tritton (1585-1614/5) on 14 April 1607. She had two children by him: Bennett Tritton (bpt. 30 July 1609; d. Jan. 1664 at Hartford, Connecticut) and Rose (b.c. 1611). Alice was baptized on 24 September 1587, at the Parish Church of St. Mary the Virgin in Ashford, and was the daughter of Robert Goldhatch and Bennett Meade. Her first name, Bennett, is supposedly a corruption of the name Benedicta. Robert Goldhatch was born in 1555, probably in Kent, and was a farmer by profession. His first marriage was to Maryan (Mary Anne) Home on 18 May 1579; his second, to Benedicta Meade on 16 April 1585. He had four children by his second wife: Richard, William, Alice and Robert. His will was dated 10 January 1598/9, and proved on 19 July 1600. On 14 April 1607, Alice married Daniel Tritton, also spelled Trytton, the son of Daniel and Elizabeth Tritton. She had two children by her first husband: Benedicta (b. 30 July 1609) and Rose. On 16 June 1617, she married her second husband Ralph Dayton.

Ralph and Alice had five children, all baptized at Ashford, Kent, England:

       i       Ralph              bpt. 28 June 1618              m. Susan Burr

       ii       Alice              bpt. 21 May 1620              m. Thomas Baker

       iii       Samuel              bpt. 7 February 1624/5       m.

       iv       Ellen              bpt. 3 December 1626       m. Brinley

       v       Robert              bpt. 3 January 1628/9       m. Elizabeth Woodruff

 

He came from Bedfordshire, England, to Boston and then to New Haven, New Haven County, Connecticut, where he signed the Covenant of Habitancy in 1639. On 17 March 1641/2, "Goodman Dighton" drew his lot for the small land parcels in the town. On 22 October 1645, the town ordered Goodman "Deighton" to "burne the playnes wth all convenient speed, takeing the fittest season." On 10 March 1646/7, he was assigned a pew in the meeting house. He took the Oath of Fidelity on 5 August 1647. That same year he petitioned the town for some extra land, and had a difference with a neighbor arbitrated.

He was a shoemaker by profession. In 1647, he was appointed by the town with two other shoemakers to test the shoes made by a fourth man whose work had caused complaints from the citizenry.

He was a resident of the New Haven Colony from 1639 until 1649. In that year, he removed across Long Island Sound to Southampton, Suffolk County, New York, then to nearby East Hampton where he resided by 1650. He was one of the signers of the "Original Compact or Civil Combination" founding the town. He served as a Representative at the Connecticut Colony's legislature in Hartford, and was chosen Constable on 7 October 1651. He was appointed as a Magistrate on 11 November 1652.

Alice must have died sometime prior to late 1655 when he married, as his second wife, Mary (------) Haines, the widow of James Haines.

He died in East Hampton in 1658, probably in September. His will, written on 25 July 1658, was probated on 22 September that year:

"       July 25 1658

       This is the last will and testament of Ralfe Dayton

              I will that my sonn Robert shall be executor to administer upon all.

There appear to be no further probate documents for him.  posted by Rich Houghton, 11/8/2000.

"RALPH DAYTON, Immigrant Progenitor

"The Record of a Family Descent from Ralph Dayton and Alice (Goldhatch) Tritton, Married June 16, 1617, Ashford, County Kent, England

A Genealogical and Biographical Account of One Branch of the Dayton Family in America

by Edson C. Dayton - Privately Printed, 1931 - Copyright 1931 by Caroline K. Dayton

   I use the above heading to associate this ancestor with, and at the same time to distinguish him from, the family group who came over with him. As his children were young, it was probably his spirit that prompted him and carried through the great adventure. That spirit was born of the times and conditions in England and in the world at large. Westward the course of civil and religious liberty took its way. It was a rising spirit and nothing could daunt it: the long and perilous ocean voyage, a harsh climate, a wilderness unsubdued, the severing of family and social ties, the departure from the country of childhood and of forefathers never to return. It was no small matter. We are satisfied in our genealogical inquiry not to go further back than to the generation which gave up England for America in the seventeenth century.

     There can be no doubt the subject of this section was of humble origin. He was a shoemaker by trade. The time was coming, however, in the development of "the new world" when Henry Wilson, a Massachusetts cobbler, should become Vice President, and Andrew Johnson, a tailor, should become President, and William L. Dayton, a descendant of Ralph, should be the candidate of a great party for the second office in the government. Not only is this true, but it is also true that in coming to this country Ralph Dayton accomplished more for himself, for his family and for his neighbors than he could have done by remaining where he was. Frontier life has a marvelous power to develop an admirable self-sufficiency which can take care of almost any situation, no matter how limited the equipment. Fortunately associated as he was with men of high character and unusual ability, he acquired a respectable and useful influence on widening lines until he died.

     Perhaps there should be introduced at this point a caution. It is easy to underestimate the standing among their neighbors of Ralph and those who were engaged in the various manual trades. I quote from a friend whose studies of social, political and economic conditions of the colonists have been pursued for many years:

"In a body of strong-minded, honest yeomanry, the carpenter, mason and cordwainer (shoemaker) were respected and sometimes honored members of the community." As we go along we shall meet with abundant confirmation of this statement.

     In a recent trip through the eastern half of Long Island I stopped at a farm house for directions. A gentleman of large physical proportions and hearty manner, answered my questions in a very simple and intelligible way, and then invited those with me and myself to look at "a few real things", as he styled them. He took us to a common farm outbuilding and called our attention to one thing after another of a large collection of ancient implements: wooden moldboard plows, yokes, hand looms, guns, etc., all in working order; largely, perhaps all, identified with the early history of the eastern half of Suffolk County. He reminded us, that what the original settlers had, they made. The machinery, the utensils, the tools, inside and outside their dwellings, all their wearing apparel, were home-made. They had to clear and break the ground. They knew how to use the gun and the axe, though theirs was not "the pen of the ready writer." For two or three generations after the coming of the immigrants there were many who could not sign their names, but resorted to the use of a mark; but without the education that comes from schools, they, nevertheless, observed, they looked within, they thought things out, they took their place in the government of the small state of which they were a real and conscious part. How shall we sum it all up? What in a word gives us a true background, or setting, for a brief account of the colonists? One of our number referred to their hardships. Descended from them, having familiarized himself with all the details of their daily life, with a profoundly sympathetic understanding of his forbears and their fellows, he drew himself to his full height, filled his lungs and then in a low voice but very impressively vented his feelings in two meaningful words: "THEY WORKED."

     The writer would like to add for himself that his recent genealogical and biographical studies have increasingly impressed upon him the greatness of the pioneers, men who illustrated the old Greek phrase: "By Worth and Work."

     The men. and women we thus honor in our thought came very largely from the great English middle class. That was not the class which a  hundred years later sought to oppress us with unjust laws and then to subjugate us in the War of the Revolution. It was the class which after nearly another hundred years, took in the principles at stake in the Civil War, sacrificed its own material interests and welfare, restrained its own government from interference and extended constant moral support to the government at Washington.

     I do not know the year of Ralph Dayton's birth, but the year 1588, more often given than any other, probably approximates pretty closely the true date. I do not know the place of his birth. There is no reason to think it was Ashford as his name does not appear on its register prior to his marriage. He may have come originally from the neighboring parish of Maidstone and one might possibly find his name on its register. As Ashford was an early name for Brookhaven, Long Island, where Samuel, one of Ralph's children settled, so Maidstone was an early name for East Hampton, Long Island, where, after a decade in and about New Haven, Ralph and his married daughter, Alice Baker, and her younger brother Robert, finally made their home. Many of the first residents of Brookhaven and East Hampton, came from County Kent, England, from Maidstone and Ashford, and in more than one connection the name of Maidstone persists in the present very attractive village of East Hampton. Indeed, in laying out their main street in East Hampton the settlers imitated a street in Maidstone, running it northwest and southeast, "as the hand on the clock points at the hour of eleven."

     I do not know the ship on which this English family sailed or the year when they arrived. There are not wanting assertions on these points but they are hardly convincing. It is likely that the port was Boston, and the year between 1635 and 1639.

     From 1639 to 1649, Ralph was a member of the New Haven Colony. The last to be settled of the five New England colonies was New Haven. The founders were Englishmen, some of them well-educated and of considerable means, and fortunate was it for the place they made their residence in the spring of the year 1638. The character of these pioneers appears from the fact that "they wished to form a little state by themselves, with no law except that which could be found in the Bible." In carrying out their purpose they adopted what was called "A Fundamental Agreement and Covenant of Habitancy." While Ralph Dayton was not among the original signers, his autograph signature was appended the following year, 1639, upon his arrival in the young colony.

 There may have been some accumulation through allotment and purchases of land and labor expended upon them, in the ten years that followed in New Haven; but it may be the most important event of a family kind was the marriage of Alice to Thomas Baker, June 20,1643. Born in England, September 29, 1618, he was enrolled "free planter" November 29, 1639, in Milford, Connecticut.  For fifty years, from 1650 to 1700, he was a highly honored citizen of East Hampton, Long Island, rendering valuable service to that community on various lines and leaving behind him an example worthy of emulation. He filled office after office, headed and helped conduct missions, and was a true friend of the family into which he had married.

     It may be noted that there exists a list of the people given sittings in the New Haven meeting. house, read in court and ordered recorded, March 10, 1646, on which list occurs the name of Goodman Dayton but not that of his wife. Just what significance attaches to the absence of her name the writer does not know. It is believed by persons more familiar with colonial customs, to whose attention he has called this omission, that it does not indicate her death. It is obviously not conclusive of  it, and there are certain considerations which look the other way. Among them are the facts that Ralph had a wife in 1655, that there is no record of a second marriage prior to that date and no known reference to the death of Alice. Feb. 13, 1655, Ralph made over the use of certain property to Robert, in which instrument occurs this paragraph: "And after the decease of me Ralfe Daiton and my wife I do give all the other partes of my land, meadoe and housing that be above mentioned to him and his heirs lawfully begotten of his body forever. In witness whereof I set to my hand." It is probable that the wife to whom he refers soon died, as the middle of the next year he married Mary Haines, the widow 6f James Haines of Southold. The weight of probability is therefore strongly in favor of Ralph having had two wives and two only, Alice Tritton and Mary Haines. It looks as if Alice was with the family both in New Haven and East Hampton.

 Leaving New Haven in 1649, tarrying by the way in Southampton, the same being true of Thomas Baker and his family, Ralph and the Bakers were on the ground  in East Hampton, L. I., in 1650. Robert joined them later.

     In a recent publication, Ralph has been credited with being "the founder of East Hampton." He was unquestionably one of its early settlers; and he, Thomas Baker and Robert signed "the Original Compact or Civil Combination." It is also true that in 1650, Ralph went by appointment to Connecticut "to procure the evidence of their lands and a code of laws." The report he brought back was adopted.

     There was a General Court, so called, and a Court of Three. Ordinary transactions were decided by the Court of Three. Larger matters and matters appealed, were considered and acted on by the General Court. The first three justices were John Mulford, Thomas Baker and Robert Bond. John Lyon Gardiner, descended from Lion Gardiner, the first proprietor of Gardiner's Island, wrote in 1798 an invaluable paper on the early days and happenings in East Hampton. In that paper he has this to say of a certain official: "The constable was always a reputable citizen and had great authority: he by law moderated the General Court." On the Town Records is this entry: "Oct. 7th 1651 Ralph Daiton is chosen constable for this yere." He was called to other offices and other services as the years went on. He was mentioned, probably the last time, in the Town Records June 24th, 1658. His will is dated July 25,1658.

     He passed away very soon thereafter. "Sept. 22, 1658. At Quarter Court, the will of the late deceased Ralph Dayton was brought into the Court and approved by the magistrates." I have read that document in the original, and in it he remembers his "Son Robert", his "son baker", his "son Samuel" and his "son brinlye's children"; and returns to his wife the portion she brought with her.

     The question arising at this point is: What are we to understand by the phrase "my son brinley's children" in the will? I have given a good deal of thought to this question. I suggest the following explanation as possible. A similar phrase immediately precedes the one being considered: "my son Baker." Baker, we of course know, was a son-in-law,  the husband of Alice. It is logical to suppose that Brinley was a son-in-law. On that supposition who was Ralph's daughter, wife of Brinley and mother of Brinley's children? Why may it not have been the Ellen whose name appears on the Ashford Registers after Samuel's and before that of Robert? As was said earlier in this monograph, the Ashford Registers have no entry of her burial or marriage, so it would seem likely that she came with the others. We find the name of Brinley at Southold and on Shelter Island. It would appear further from the will, signed late in July 1658, that Ralph and his wife were at that time living in the house he owned at North Sea and bequeathed to Samuel. It is therefore quite possible that he died, and he may have been buried, at North Sea.

     The late Judge R. P. Hedges, a distinguished citizen of Bridgehampton, descended, however, from one of the first planters of East Hampton, the commemorative orator at East Hampton on the two hundredth and then on the two hundred and fiftieth anniversary of its founding and furnishing by request of the committee of editors in charge, the introduction to each of the five volumes of its Town Records, has in one connection this to say of the East Hampton Daytons: "The family has generally a good record for intelligence, industry, purity and worth. Many have achieved eminence."

     In that early day and community, there were a number of strong and able men: Mulford, Osborne, Hedges, Ralph and Robert Dayton; but perhaps it would not be invidious in view of their great capacity for service and their marked magnanimity if we assign pre-eminence to Lion Gardiner and Thomas Baker.

     On the Main street of East Hampton, in the center of the street, stands the old "South End" cemetery, where they laid away the fathers. The most notable monument is that of a recumbent statue erected to the memory of Lion Gardiner, possibly the first Englishman to establish his home within the territory of what is now the State of New York, a civil engineer by profession, of large wealth, of superior intelligence, who turned Gardiner's Island over to his son, removed to East Hampton and identified himself with its people and their interests, social, business, governmental, in the days when it stood in need of such a friend. The descendants of Thomas Baker have erected a stone, which preserves some interesting facts. One item inscribed, states that there is no stone to the memory of Ralph Dayton and none to the memory of his son Robert. Another fact recorded, is that Alice is buried at Amagansett, a hamlet three miles east of East Hampton. Then there is a long list on the stone of the public offices Thomas Baker had held.

     There is a well kept rural cemetery at Amagansett, and a stone firm and erect and perfectly legible recalls her who, born in England in 1620, came to this country and lived until 1708, in the 88th year of her age. It is the only stone that marks the burial place of any one of that family group of Daytons who came from Ashford and settled on Long Island. A house, said to have been built by Robert Dayton and now known as the "John Howard Payne Memorial Place," still stands.

     The Ashford shoemaker, having migrated to America, became one of the early settlers of New Haven, an "interpreter to the Indians" and a trusted founder of East Hampton, the progenitor of twenty generations that the writer knows of, of a large numbei of descendants bearing his surname and carrying it from ocean to ocean and beyond.

"Alice (Goldhatch) (Tritton) Dayton, widow of Daniel Tritton. Alice's mother, widow Bennett (Meade) Goldhatch, had married Daniel's father, Hugh Tritton, as his second wife, in 1601, a few years before Alice and Daniel were wed in 1607."

Notes for Thomas Baker:

"Thomas Baker was of Milford, CT, 10 May 1650 when he bought East Hampton, LI, land holdings of Capt. Daniel How. Four months later he was dismissed from the Milford to East Hampton. There he was Townsman in 1651, 1653, 1654, 1655, and 1657; second military officer 1654; Magistrate 1661, 1663; Deputy Feb 1664/5; Patentee and Constable 1667; Trustee 1686; and Commissioner 1688.

Thomas Baker, the immigrant ancestor, was born in Hothfield (near Ashford), County Kent, England on 29 September 1618; he was baptized on Sunday, 11 October, of that same year. His parentage is presently unclear.

While it is uncertain exactly when he came to America, he was at Milford, New Haven County, Connecticut (one of the original six towns in New Haven Colony), in 1639, where he was enrolled as a free planter on 29 November. This coincides with an old family bible entry that says he "came out of England in 1639"

He married ALICE-2 DAYTON, daughter of Ralph Dayton and Alice (Goldhatch) Tritton, on 20 June 1643, probably in New Haven. Alice was baptized in Ashford, Kent, on 21 May 1620. They had four children:

       i       Hannah              b. 26 June 1650              m. Ebenezer Leek

       ii       Thomas              b. 26 July 1654              m. Ann Topping

       iii       Nathaniel              b. 22 December 1655              m. Catherine Schellinger

       iv       Abigail              b. 1 June 1658              m. ------ Tuthill

Thomas later removed to East Hampton, Suffolk County, New York, where he had settled by 1650; Thomas Baker "of Milford" is recorded as having bought the East Hampton land holdings of Capt. Daniel Howe on 10 May of that year. This was four months before he was dismissed from the Milford Church to attend the church in East Hampton. He was one of the signers of the "Original Compact or Civil Combination" founding the town.

His new home was the location of the town's church services until the meeting house was built in 1653. The town paid him £0.01.06 each Sabbath to use the building. After the church services were moved, Thomas operated a tavern there which was first licensed on 29 June 1654. He was still licensed to operate a place of public entertainment in 1673. His holdings in 1683 were valued at £244.

He held several civic posts, serving as Selectman in 1651, 1653-55, and 1657; Second Military Officer in 1654; Magistrate in 1661 and 1663; Deputy in February, 1664/5; Patentee and Constable, 1667; Trustee, 1686; and Commissioner, 1688. He served on a commission to travel to Connecticut and petition to bring East Hampton under that colony's jurisdiction. In 1665 he was the foreman of the first grand jury to sit in the Province of New York, in New York City. On 4 May 1671, he and the Rev. Thomas James were chosen to treat with the towns of Southampton and Southold to establish a charter.

On 6 March 1671/2, Thomas brought suit in the Suffolk County Court of Sessions against Thomas Skidmore; the action was one "concerning Debt & Damage or not accompting." Because the defendant was sick, he could not appear and the trial was put off until June. This was not his last experience in court that year. The constables of East Hampton entered a complaint against him "for takeing goods into his possession and Detaining them, Not withstanding the Sd goods lay under Arrest or attachmt." The court found:

"       yt Mr. Tho: Backer tooke a barell of Oyle illegally into his possession: And doe award or Sentence him to returne the Same unto ye Constable of Easthapmton from whose custody it was Soe taken. And also to pay as fine -- 10s -- to ye poore of the Parish. And Cort Charges."

Finally, on 7 March of that year, he entered a complaint against Thomas Osburne for "mollesting him in ye quiet possession of his goods, to his great damage." The case was put off to the next court session.

He died on 30 April 1700, in East Hampton; he was ninety-one. A memorial plaque in the Old South End Cemetery reads:

"       In Memory of Mr. Thomas Baker

       & his wife Alice Dayton.

       They came from England AD 1639,

       he to Milford, she to New Haven,

       were married 1643, came to this Town 1650,

       Assistant to the General Court of Conn. 1658,

        39.  Rebecca, born 1620 in Fairfield, Connecticut; died May 17, 1684 in Stamford, Fairfield County, Connecticut.

Notes for Francis Bell:

" Lieut. Francis Bell. Francis died on 8 Jan 1690[1689/90] in Stamford, CT."

Francis was in Stamford, then called Rippowams, in 1641. He had been early at Wethersfield, was a Lieutenant 1666, but not freeman of Connecticut Colony before 1676, though he was adm. of that of New Haven Colony in 1641. From his will of 24 May 1689 we gain something as to his family. Jonathan is the only son named, daughter Mary Hoyt, and four sons of his daughter Rebecca, wife of Jonathan Tuttle.

Francis was early at Wehtersfield and removed to Stamford in 1641. He was Lieutentant of the Stamford Trainband, May 1655; deputy from stamford to the New Haven Legislature 1653-1659 and 1661-1664; Magistrate in Stamford in 1652, 1654-1656, and 1658-1663. He was confirmed lieutenant by Connecticut Colony in Oct 1666.9

Francis married Rebecca [Bell]. Rebecca died on 17 May 1684 in Stamford, CT.9

They had the following children:

 260 i. Jonathan (ca1641-1699)

Francis Bell (Abraham-1) was born around 1620 in England. He was the son of Abraham Bell and his wife Catherine, and may have come from Yorkshire.

He married REBECCA ------ ; when, where and the identities of her parents are presently unknown. They had at least three children:

       i       Jonathan              b.c. 1641              m. (1) Mercy Crane

                                          m. (2) Susan Pierson

       ii       Rebecca              b.c. 1643              m. Jonathan Tuttle

       iii       Mary              b.c. 1646              m. (1) Joshua Hoyt

                                          m. (2) Joseph Turney

It is thought that he came to Connecticut with Saltonstall from the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1630. He was an early settler of Wethersfield, Hartford County, Connecticut. He served as a lieutenant in the Wethersfield militia, although he was apparently not a freeman.

Around 1641, he removed to Stamford (then called Rippowams), Fairfield County, Connecticut, where he was one of the first settlers. He had a grant of seven acres there, and his house was on the corner of East and South Streets. On 28 February 1661/2, he sold land to John Holly (No. 106: 6:2178): "In ye East Feeld, three accres of upland . . . & a psell of mayzeland adjoyning to it."

In Stamford, he served as a Deputy to the New Haven Colony legislature for several years. Elected as the town's first Deputy on 27 October 1641, he served again in May 1653 and was reelected to that post every May until 1659, and every May from 1661 through 1663 and in January and May 1664. In addition, in 1644 he was appointed to a commitee charged with travelling to Boston to secure the services of a minister for the new town. He was elected Magistrate in Stamford in May 1652, 1654 to 1656, and 1658 to 1663. Finally, he served as a Lieutenant in the Stamford Train Band in 1643, and still held that post in May 1655. He was confirmed in the position by the new Connecticut legislature in October 1666.

In addition, on 22 March 1669, he was appointed to a committee to oversee construction of a new meeting house made of stone: "if thay can'ot git a house built w'th stone, thay have liberty to get it dun w'th timber." The subject of the meeting house – its size, shape, and construction materials – was a source of controversy in the community for two years. On 26 October 1670, he was named to another committee having "full power com'ited to them to procure a ston new meeting house . . . to be for ye publick worship of God in this place." But the disagreements persisted, and on 29 March 1671 Holly and another man were chosen "to take ye minds of ye town conscerned in the meeting house, to know their mindes . . . for what forme & figure they have a mind to build." Apparently, no compromise could be discovered; six days later, at a town meeting,

       "it was agreede that the finall desition & diference respecting the forme or figuer of the new meeteing house is to be done p' a solem ordinance of God, in drawing of lott; & ye reason of this way is because the towne being not capable to desyde it . . . . The solem ordinance being as above voted, the lott carid it for a square meeting house as above . . . to be thirty & eight foott square & the height of ye wall to be twelve foott . . . [with] a teurett on ye tope & for dementions of it, is left to ye comity & carpenders to order itt."

On the following day, the town "doth chuse, conferme and apoyt" Holly and four others to be a committee "for ye caring on ye work about ye new meeting [house]." Samuel Holly and Francis then resigned as Selectmen, the "reason is because they are chosen to be of the comity for the meeting house & desyerd theire release."

On 23 December 1670, "Left. Francis Bell" was appointed to lay out a house lot for Matthew Bellemy, the new schoolmaster. On 25 February 1673, he was one of a committee of three chosen to seat the townsmen in the meeting house.

Rebecca died in Stamford on 17 May 1684. An inventory of her estate included the following:

"       A red broad cloth petticoat and a red tamy petticoat, A fine cloth westcot a gray serge petticoat, A serge gown a red serge wescot, A gray serge strait bodied gown a short loose coat, A mohair petticoat a homespun gown almost new, A serge green apron tamy green apron, A blue apron 3 pieces of old silk, A caster hat an old caster hat, Dresings 3 caps and seven neckhandkechiefs, 3 single hankerchers & nine caps, 1 white cap 14 coifs 4 headbands 2 old neckcloths a pair of fore sleeves & a coyle, 5 long linen neckcloths 2 black caps, 1 fine homespun shift 1 hollon apron 1 linen apron, 1 linen shift 1 linen shift, 1 cotton shift 1 cotton shift 1 hollon shift 1 linen shift, 1 new cotton shift, 1 pair of fine sheets, 1 pair of fine sheets to Rebecca Tuttle on ye island."

Francis survived his wife by several years, probably living with -- or at least being cared for by -- his son Jonathan whose home was on the same lot. On 26 May 1685, he was issued a patent by the General Court of Connecticut confirming his ownership of lands in Stamford purchased originally from the Indians. That he is titled "Mister" in the record is an indication of his social standing.

He died in Stamford on 8 January 1689/90. Cotton Mather eulogized him as "a firm Puritan in form and principle." His will, dated 24 May 1689 and proved on 11 March 1689/90, provided:

"              I ffrancis Bell of Stamford being now in Competent state of bodily health & having the use of my understanding, having comitted my soul to the Lord & my body (when dead) to decent interment. Concerning my outward estate (by this my Last Will & Testament) I thus dispose of it.

His estate was inventoried on 28 January 1689/90:

The total was £317.12.00; one of the bibles mentioned in the inventory is presently owned by the Stamford Historical Society."   

 "Unfortunately, so far no primary sources, only secondary. The first is a book called "Weed Family in America," pg 81.  For his possible Yorkshire origins, see Donald L. Jacobus, 4 "Fams. of Ancient New Haven" pg 204 (Baltimore 1974)." 

 "Rich, Thanks. I have Jacobus, Fam of Ancient NH (on CD) but can't locate your reference, no Bells on p204. The only indexed ref to Abraham is on p968 and doesn't cover origins.  In the History of Ancient Wethersfield, Vol II by Adams and Stiles, p 92-93 is an additional Abraham/Francis clue, but only an opinion."

Notes for Abraham Bell:

posted by Rich Houghton, 11/2/2000:

"This is the information I have collected on Abraham-1 Bell. Each factual statement is footnoted with the source from which I acquired the material, but GenForum does not support footnotes so if you have a question about sources please e-mail me and I'll be happy to provide them to you. Of course, I also welcome corrections or additions to any of the information which I do have.

Little is known about Abraham Bell, the immigrant ancestor, other than that he was born in England sometime in the 1610s.

He married KATHERINE ------, most probably in England; her parentage is presently unknown. They had at least two children:

       i       Francis              b.               m. Rebecca ------

       ii       Isaac              b.               m. ------ ------

He and his family came to the New Haven Colony in 1639. Then apparently running counter to prevailing settlement patterns, they moved north to Charlestown, Massachusetts Bay Colony, in 1647.

Abraham died in Charlestown in either February or early March, 1663; his estate was inventoried on 15 March 1662/3. The inventory listed the following items:

Notes for Reverend Peter Bulkeley:

from THE FOUNDING OF HARVARD COLLEGE by Samuel Eliot Morison (class of 1908), published by Harvard University Press, Cambridge, Massachusettes, 1935:

Appendix B:  "Peter Bulkeley, born at Odell, Bedfordshire, 31 January 1582-83, son of Edward Bulkeley, D.D., sometime fellow of St. John's and a member of an ancient landed family.  Peter took his B.A. from St. John's College, Cambridge, in 1603-04, being placed eleventh in the ' ordo senioritatis' of that year, and became Fellow of the College in 1605.  Took his M.A. 1608, ordained the same year, and in 1610 was incorporated 'ad eundem gradum' at Oxford.  Canon of Litchfield 1609, and university preacher at Cambridge 1610.  At the death of his father in 1620 he inherited a considerable fortune, and succeeded to his father's rectory at Odell.  Emigrated with his wife and family in1635 on the 'Susan and Ellen'(Ellin?).  That autumn he was one of the grantees of Concord, began the settlement of it the same year, and served as pastor of the church there until his death on 9 March 1658-59.  In his lifetime he presented many books to Harvard College, and at his death his library was valued at 123 (Pounds);  but most of his large estate was wasted by emigration.  Moderator of the Cambridge Synod of 1637;  author of "The Gospel Covenant" and other works.  By his first wife Jane, d. of Thomas Allen, gent.) he was father of Edward Bulkeley (q.v.) and John Bulkeley of the first Harvard class; by his second wife (Grace, d. of Sir Richard Chetwode) father of Gershom (A.B. 1655), Eleazer (class of 1658) , and Peter  (class of 1662).  Uncle of Chief-Justice Oliver St John.  D.A.B.; D.N.B.; Lemuel Shattuck, Concord."

"Such were several among the leading founders of New England and of Harvard:  both Winthrops and both Saltonstalls, Downing and Bradstreet, Bellingham, and Peter Bulkeley, of whom Cotton Mather wrote, 'His Education ... was Learned, it was Genteel, and ...Pious.'  To Harvard they brought a new zeal for scriptural religion and the humanist tradition."

. . . "an architectural canon handed down from Vitruvius, libraries should run north and south, in order to get the early morning light.  For so small a collection as ours no room of that description could be spared; but this library in the Old College, facing east and south, had the light from early morning to late afternoon.  We have not the slightest hint as to the arrangement of books, whether in cases or against the walls, or on presses at right angles to them; we only know that the books were not chained.  There the Library remained until the summer of 1676, when it was removed to Old Harvard Hall.

Edward Johnson, writing in 1651, describes the collection as "a good Library, given by the liberal hand of some Magistrates"

"Peter Bulkeley and Concord

By Murray Scott Downs (email, family homepage). In some cases, personal, family and Concord history are so interwoven they cannot be separated. The author was kind enough to share some family genealogy which touches upon the earliest days of Concord's European settlement.  

I am a retired professor of (British) history at North Carolina State University, graduated from Randolph-Macon College, Atouches, VA, attended University of Edinburgh on Rotary Foundation Fellowship (1949-1950), and obtained graduate degrees from Duke University.

I am descended on my father's side from many families who were part of the Puritan Migration of the 1630's and 1640's, through Boston and for most to Fairfield County, CT. I spent most of the summers of my youth in Manomet, MA, and now my summers are enjoyed in Falmouth, MA.

I first became aware of the Bulkeley family connection with Concord when my wife and I, during one of several self-guided, self-driving ancestral sites tours in England and Scotland, discovered a large plaque in the Odell church recognizing a substantial contribution from the citizens of Concord toward the renovation of that church (see sidebar at right for information about Odell).

The text from the plaque at Odell from a photograph we took reads:

"The Five XVIIth Century Bells in the tower of this church were retuned and rehung with a metal bell frame in 1958 - A Sixth Bell, given by Harold and Betty Justing was added at the same time. The cost of this work was met by many friends in Odell and elsewhere, including the people of Concord, Mass. U. S. A. who made a generous donation in memory of the founder of Concord, the Rev. Peter Buckeley, a Rector of Odell in the XVIIth Century. Frank J. Barwood, Rector."

The following history is all obviously from a genealogical and Bulkeley perspective. Any reference to Concord's origins on this site needs to come from broader sources than just this article.

The Rev. Peter Bulkeley (left, above) was born in 1583 in Odell, Bedfordshire, England. He was a graduate of Cambridge where Puritan ideas were being generated. He succeeded his father as rector of the Church of All Saints in Odell in 1610.

In 1634 as a result of Archbishop Laud's campaign against the Puritans, Bulkeley was suspended. He brought his family to Boston in 1635. "In the autumn of 1635, a tract of land at Musketaquid, six miles square, was purchased from the Indians. The hardships which the founding of Concord entailed...." (Jacobus, The Bulkeley Genealogy, p 104 [1933]). Bulkeley and Rev. John Jones organized a church in 1636 with Jones as pastor and Bulkeley as teacher.

Unfortunately, theological disputes common to many colonial towns caused Jones to leave in 1644 for Fairfield, CT (one of his daughters had married one of Bulkeley sons [my ancestor]). Only thirty families remained.

Eventually under Bulkeley's leadership Concord began to prosper. During this time he wrote The Gospel Covenant that was the first religious book of importance written in New England (Jacobus), and one of the first American books to be printed.

Britannia Rules the WAVs: Greetings from Odell

Over the past two years, we have searched for Odell on the Web without success. However, within two weeks of receiving the article at left, we were contacted by the Webmaster of the Odell homepage, Jon Hudson. You can now visit this village of 200 at http://host1.kbnet.co.uk/odell/

On behalf of Odell, Jon sends us greetings (5-second .wav). Do listen to how Odell is properly pronounced. Locally, we Americans tend to incorrectly make it sound like it looks: "o-DELL" (wrongly sounding like "Farmer in the o-DELL"). Here is our response (another 5-second .wav).

_________________________

"A book titled "The Bulkeley Line" starts out saying: Surely one of our most remarkable ancestral stories is that of the Bulkeleys. Remarkable for its length: sixteen male generations through nearly 600 years! Remarkable for it blue blood: Descendants of kings of England, Scotland, Norway, Sweden and France, and many a lady and nobleman. Remarkable for its piety: three generations of Puritan clergymen trying to reform the Church of England, and failing that, building God's new church in the new land.

 The Rev. Peter Bulkeley of Odell brought the family to America in 1635. The same book says this about Peter; Scion of several noble and wealthy British families, a parson and son of a parson, a man of courageous Puritan convictions in a time when church and country were falling apart, out immigrant ancestor, the Reverend Peter Bulkeley, co-founder and first co-minister of Concord, Massachusetts."

        "Peter Bulkeley grew up in England with quite a bit of money. He was a minister in England, but he was banished for Puritanism. At the time under the rule of King Charles the first, many Puritans were banished from England. The Puritan colony began in Massachusetts Bay Colony. Peter Bulkeley decided to have his son take a boat to Cambridge, Massachusetts and build him a house. Bulkeley and the rest of his family followed later. They met up in the summer of 1635 and lived in his house.

        When Bulkeley arrived in Cambridge there were already many English ministers. He was a smart person so he thought he would start a new parish. Peter Bulkeley heard of a man called Simon Willard. Willard was going to settle land called Musketaquid. Musketaquid is what the natives called this land where three rivers met and there were open meadows. Musketaquid means reedy rivers.

        On September 12, 1635, the General Court of the Massachusetts Bay Colony gave Peter Bulkeley and Simon Willard permission to settle in Musketaquid. Reverend Peter Bulkeley, Simon Willard, and Reverend Jones journeyed into the swamps in the late fall.There were dangers, and they only traveled 20 miles on foot and ox-cart, but they made it. Peter Bulkeley sent a man to build him a house in Musketaquid, which by the general court was to be called "Concord", which means "agreement and peace between people and surroundings".

        Reverend Bulkeley continued to be active at the parish for his entire life. He kept on preaching, and helped to govern and make political decisions, develop trade, settle disputes, and of course, he helped the town grow.  That is the life of Peter Bulkeley."

       " Peter was educated at St. Johns College, Cambridge University in England. He succeeded to the Rectorship of Odel parish where he served for 21 years. After years of persecution for nonconformity he took his family and a large contingent of followers to America in 1635 "Of the concern my renewed soul has for the free worship of the Lord Christ and for planting of evangelical churches in the which to exercise that worship."  They landed in Massachusetts Bay Colony and a year later he founded the town of Concord described thusly: "The little town was built under the protection of a sunny bank, and all the houses faced on one long straight street. Here, with close cut hair and clad with scrupulous care in the strict habit of the Puritan divine, the Reverend grave and godly Mr. Bulkley might be seen on the rounds of his daily duty, going from house to house to instruct the young and watching with pastoral care over the elders of his flock ... to the end of his life he continued to write Latin verse at which he had a compentently good stroke."  During this time he wrote The Gospel Covenant, which was the first religious book of importance written in New England (Jacobus), and one of the first American books to be printed."

 

"Excerpt From Concord: Stories to be Told

A Massachusetts "Town Memoir"

By Liz Nelson, Illustrated by Amy Bishop

The People of Musketaquid

On the periphery of the field, spring sun colored the oak trees green, and the air twittered with the calls of birds. A little distance away, the waters of the Musketaquid River flowed east. All appeared as it had always been. But the Algonquian woman knew better.

With practiced movements, she broke up the soil with her hoe made from a sea clam shell attached to a stick. Each time she planted, she placed a fish at her feet, then mixed ashes with the soil and built a small mound the width of two hands over the fish. With her thumb she poked corn kernels into the enriched earth, covered them, and patted the small hill with her palm. She worked all morning and then stopped, uncertain how many more mounds to create. How much did she and the other women even need to plant, when less than ten families remained in Musketaquid, "the place of grass and reeds"?

As the moon had waxed and waned, more native people had died. Through it all, the women stored their harvest and gathered nuts, berries, and roots. The men hunted and fished, and traveled along the river and the many well-worn woodland paths to other villages. In each, men and women spoke of little else except the numbers who had died and were dying still. In some villages they found the weetus, stick-framed dwellings covered in reed or bark mats, empty. They hadn't been dismantled, the frames left behind, the way native people left their wigwams as they moved with the seasons. These were villages where men, women, children old and young - all had died.

Permanent communities of native people had lived in New England for over 11,000 years. Historians know little more than the Algonquians did regarding exactly what plague decimated the native people in the early 1600s. Traders and fishermen, whom the native people called Awaunaguss (strangers), brought the disease with them from Europe. In the years 1616-1618, it killed between 75 and 90 percent of the Algonquian people who lived along the New England coast and the inland villagers with whom they had contact. Then, within fifteen years of the plague, English settlers began to arrive in earnest.

 

The Town Grant

In 1630, John Winthrop, together with other English emigrants, sailed across the North Atlantic, royal charter in hand. The document provided that the new Massachusetts Bay Company, of which Winthrop was governor, would run its own affairs in a territory that stretched between what we know today as the Merrimack and Charles rivers. Seventeen ships brought over one thousand settlers that year - men and women seeking to build a new Puritan spiritual community and drawn by land and the opportunity it promised. Over the course of the next decade, twenty thousand more would follow.

Simon Willard arrived in 1634. Like many in the first migration, he was well-educated and of good social standing. Quickly he became involved in the lucrative fur trade, which sent him into the wilderness, away from the new villages sprinkled along the coast. Twenty-nine-year-old Willard wanted to establish a settlement inland, closer to the source of fur. At the Algonquian village of Musketaquid, with its few survivors, streams large and small flowed into two rivers, which in turn blended to form one. This offered abundant shad, salmon, and alewives, plus six potential mill sites. For decades the Algonquian villagers had cultivated the meadows and tracts of upland bordering the rivers, so the English immigrants would be spared the toil of clearing land for farming. Beyond stretched the forest, teeming with creatures whose fur Willard sought.

Though the Massachusetts Bay Company's General Court (the company's stockholders) likely found Willard's initiative impressive, they were not ready to have someone so young be a town founder. When the Reverend Peter Bulkeley arrived in Cambridge in 1635, Willard quickly befriended him. At fifty-two, Bulkeley was learned, respected, and quite wealthy; he brought with him £6,000. Willard, Bulkeley, and twelve families petitioned the authorities, and on September 2, 1635, the General Court issued the town grant:

"It is ordered that there shall be a plantation att Musketaquid, and that there shall be 6 myles of land square to belonge to it . . . and the name of the place is changed and here after to be called Concord."

The new town was the first in New England settled above tide waters."

"HDC 11.61 7 The elder Bulkeley [Peter] was gone. In 1659, his bones were laid at rest in the forest. "

Reverand

The Merriam (Joseph, George and Robert) and Flint families are mentioned in

one of Ralph Waldo Emerson's poems "Hamatreya:"

"Bulkeley, Hunt, Willard, Hosmer, Meriam, Flint,

Possessed the land which rendered to their toil

Hay, corn, roots, hemp, flax, apples, wool and wood.

 

Where are these men? Asleep beneath their grounds

And strangers, fond as they, their furrows plough.

They added ridge to valley, brook to pond

And sighed for all that bounded their domain.

 

Each of these landlords walked amidst his farm

Saying 'T' is mine, my children's and my name's"

The poem was cited in a book on Concord by Ruth Wheeler, "Concord, Climate for Freedom."

 

Peter Bulkeley was the Reverend and one of twelve families to which Concord

was granted. There is no record of the other incorporators, but it is

concluded that the Merriams and Flints were likely among them.

       

Children of Peter Bulkeley and Jane Allen are:

                           i.               Reverend Edward Bulkeley, born 1614; died January 02, 1695/96; married Lucian.

Notes for Reverend Edward Bulkeley:

"Rev. Edward Bulkeley was baptized June 12, 1614, in Odell, England He was the son of Rev. Peter Bulkeley and Jane Allen. He married Lucian -----. She was a widow, apparently from Plymouth Colony. She had a daughter Lucy, by her first husband, who married John Lake.

Edward Bulkeley matriculated pensioner from St. Catherine's College, Cambridge, Easter 1629. He came to New England before the rest of his family. He was admitted a member of the First Church in Boston, March 22, 1634/5. He was dismissed to the church in Concord on August 15, 1641. He was licensed to preach the gospel and ordained at Marshfield, Mass., in 1642/3. When his father died in 1659, he became his successor as the minister in Concord, at £80 a year. He died January 2, 1695/6, in Chelmsford, in the 53rd year of his ministry. He was buried in Concord, aged 82.

Rev. Edward Bulkeley "is represented by tradition as being lame and of a feeble constitution, and was greatly reputed for his talents, acquirements, irreproachable character, and piety." On March 5, 1694, the town of Concord voted that the town pay him £30 yearly for his maintenance, he no longer being capable of doing the work of ministry. Bulkeley accepted provided he could preach or not as he felt inclined.[1]

"Rev. Joseph Emerson was baptized June 25, 1620, in Bishops-Stortford, England. He was the son of Thomas Emerson and Elizabeth Brewster. His first wife was Elizabeth Woodmansey. They were probably married as early as 1650. He married Elizabeth Bulkeley, December 7, 1665, in Concord, Mass. She was born in about 1638, and was the daughter of Rev. Edward Bulkeley.

Joseph may have studied at Harvard. He first lived in Ipswich, Mass., and in 1648, preached at York, Me. Soon afterwards, he became the minister in Wells, Me. "Because of political dissensions which disturbed the church, his ministry was not successful, and he was dismissed about 1664." He settled in Mendon, in December 1669, until the town was destroyed by Indians. He then retired to Concord. He died January 3, 1679/80, in Concord.[1]

Notes for Reverend John Jones:

Rev. John Jones. Born ca 1593 in Northampton, England. John died in 1665. Education: Queens College, Cambridge, BA 1612/3, MA 1616.

John was ordained deacon at Peterboro on 19 Dec 1613, probably record of Abbot's Ripton, county Huntington 1619-1630, when he was deprived. He came to New England, arriving at Boston 3 Oct 1635, on the Defence, from London, in 1635, with his wife Sarah age 34, and children Sarah 15, John 11, Ruth 7, Theophilus 3, Rebecca 2 and Elizabeth 6 months.

A note on p. 51 of the very agreeable Annals of the Am. Pulpit repeats the idle tradit. But the sagacious writer perhaps took his revenge by add. the truth, that he d. a. 1664, aged "upwards of seventy yrs." unless he had adopt. contradictory acco. and dared not indicate a preference. The want of courage must not be imput. to Dr. Sprague. Incuria fudit. Yet Dr. Allen, in his new Ed. of the Biog. Dict. foll. him without hesitat. or scrutiny. He was ord. 6 Apr. 1637, pastor to the ch. gather. in July preced. of wh. the more import. min. call. teacher, was Peter Bulkley; there had Eliphalet, b. 9 Jan. 1641, but in Sept. 1644 went with many of his parish to Fairfield. Perhaps the w. and s. Theophilus d. at C. He d. early in 1665; his inv. bear. date of 9 Feb. and his will made 17 Jan. preced. It ment. w. Susanna, s. John, and Eliphalet, ds. Sarah Wilson, w. of Anthony, wh. had been w. of Thomas Bulkley; a wid. Ruth James, Rebecca Hall, and Elizabeth Hill.

aft 1654 John second married Susanna [Jones].13 Born ca 1605.

Susanna was perhaps the widow of Richard Hollingsworth of Salem."

"His second marriage was to Susanna _____. She was born about 1605 and perhaps was the widow of Richard Hollingsworth of Salem. Her daughter, Mercy, was tried for witchcraft in 1692.

John Jones matriculated sizar from Queens College, Cambridge, Michaelmas 1608, as John "Johnes"; B.A., 1612/13; M.A. 1616; ordained deacon at Peterboro, December 19, 1613. He probably was rector of Abbot's Ripton, county Huntington, 1619–1630, when he was deprived (removed) from his office.

"The Ship DEFENCE of London, Edward Bostock, Master. She sailed from London about the last of July (1635) and arrived at Boston October 8, with about one hundred passengers."

He and his family sailed on Defence: his wife Sarah, age 34, and children Sarah 15, John 11, Ruth 7, Theophilus 3, Rebecca 2, and Elizabeth 6 months. It was a terrifying crossing; the ship sprung a leak during the first storm.

Upon his arrival, he was entertained by Governor Winthrop in his Boston house. He settled in Concord, Massachusetts, with Rev. Peter Bulkeley.

Rev. Jones's will was dated January 17, 1664; his wife, Susanna, was the executrix. It contained: £50 that he promised his wife; he owed the heirs of Capt. Cullick £7; children listed: John Jones, Elaphalet Jones, Sarah Wilson (widow), Ruth James, Rebecca Hull, and Elizabeth Hill. The overseers were Mr. Gold and Mr. Pell; the inventory was dated February 9, 1664/5."

Notes for Reverend Edward Bulkeley:

" Baptised into the Church of England. By the time he was a teenager, it was determined that he was to become a scholar, and he was sent to Cambridge, 125 miles from his native fields of Chesire and Salop. There, in the fall term of 1555, he entered St John's College with other 14 and 15 year olds. Cambridge University was, by then, over three centuries old, but St John's had just been founded in 1511. Newer yet was Trinity College, founded by Henry VIII in 1546. This was a symboel of the crown's strong support for the new Protestant bent toward learning, and still today the largest college in the University.

At St John's, Edward followed the normal course of study, earning his bachelor of arts in 1559/60, whereupon he was made a fellow of the college. He continued for a master of arts in 1563. Apparently by then he had decided on the priesthood, and after another six years, supported no doubt, by Bulkeley funds from the west, he completed his bachelor of Divinity, in 1659.

He married Olive Irby in about 1566. She probably met Edward around Cambridge rather than in Woore.

In 1571, at somewhat over 30 years of age, Edward obtained the rectorship at All Saints Church in the village of Odell (pronounced as in yodle without the' y')in Bedforshire, less than three miles west of Cambridge. And here he and Olive settled for the rest of their lives (except for four years in Shrewsbury, serving a rural, out-of-the-way parish and raising eleven children, mostly girls.

For a brief span, (1578-82) he was simultaneously vicar of St Mary's Church in Shrewsbury, in Salop. Records attest to his residence there for a time; the Burgess Roll of 1580 for the Shrewsbury Corporation indicates that Edward Bulkeley of Shrewsbury. professor of theology, son of Thomas was admitted as a burgress.

We know little of Edward's career. As was the custom,  he was supported by a stipend from the estates of well endowed catherdrals. (Chester in 1574, Westminster in 1583, and Lichfield in 1594) Meanwhile, he had been granted a doctor of divinity degree by St John's in 1578. So by the time he was 40, he was an esteemed pastor, the Reverend Edward Bulkeley, D.D. He was among the several clergymen appointed by the Bishop of Lincoln in 1608 for the Levy of Armour in Bedfordshire among the clergy. That the clergy should be directly responsible to James I and his lords, and might be mobilized for battle by them, was an extreme offense to that growing body of Christians called Puritans, of which Edward was one.

Edward lived in a remarkable time in English history. Born in the tempestuous days of Henry VIII's reign, he survived the violent swings toward Protestantism (under Edward VI) and Catholicism (under "Bloody Mary") that followed. His years of ministry conincided very closely with the reign of Henry's daughter, Elizabeth. They were years of energy, actioin, display, advancing prosperity and financial stability, humanism, nationalism, world-wide exploration, remarkable progress in architecture, music, literature, poetry and drama. And they were years in which the Church of England became clearly established as the religion of the state, to which all must publicly conform.

This church was a tact compromise, an imprecise melding of Catholic and Reformation traditions, but it was to be uniform and compulsory. Though the Catholics on the right and the Puritans on the left clamored and plotted for change, Elizabeth and her bishops held this Anglic Compromise together until the end of the century. With Elizabeth's death in 1603, its disintegration was rapid and devastating. Edward is described as "a moderate Puritan." We can assume that, though faithful to queen and bishop, he leaned toward a more thorough reformation of the church.

Dr. Bulkeley resigned his Odell pastorate in 1609, probably due to failing health, as it was taken up immediately by his son, Peter. Edward and Olive continued to live in or near Odell, but she died within a few years. The Odell parish register of burials reads "10 March, 1614/5." Mrs. Olive Bulkeley, the wyffe of Master Edward Bulklye, doctor." And six years later, with his own hand, son Peter recorded his father's burial "5 January, 1602/1. The Right Worshipfull Mr. Edward Bulckly, Dockter of Devinitie."

Generation No. 17

 

        65536.  Robert de Deighton

 

Notes for Robert de Deighton:

"The surname DAYTON is perhaps a weak form of DALTON or more probably a variation of DEIGHTON.  The form DALTON is derived from the word "dale", probably referring to the farm or habitation of the earliest English forbears of the American family of DAYTON.  The name DEIGHTON is derived from the Danish and originally meant the " dike enclosure of the farm by the dike".  Variations of this latter form are:  DAITON, DATON, DAIGHTON, DAYGHTON, and DIGHTON.  In early American records, DRAYTON was sometimes used interchangeably with DAYTON.

It is recorded that a family, variously noted as DEIGHTON, DYGHTON and DEYSON, as early as the 13th century, resided in the vicinity of the hamlet of Deighton, in the parish of Deighton, in the east riding of Yorkshire.  This hamlet is about four and a half miles south south east from the present city of York.

The early DEIGHTON's appear to have been for generations tenants of a farm on the Manor of Deighton.  The Abbott of St. Mary's of York is named as the lord of the manor.  The family at that time was of the yeomanry, but the family annals reveal a steady rise in both social and economic position.

The first individual recorded in the family history is Robert de Deighton.  Robert was a Yeoman.  A Yeoman implied a gentleman of small estate who besides being a freeholder, was an officer in the Militia of his section of the country, hence the expression " an officer of the guard".

Notes for King Edward I of England:

"Edward Longshanks I King of England"

"Born in June 1239 at Westminster, Edward was named by his father Henry III after the last Anglo Saxon king (and his father's favourite saint) Edward the Confessor. Edward's parents were renowned for their patronage of the arts (his mother, Eleanor of Provence, encouraged Henry III to spend money on the arts, which included the rebuilding of Westminster Abbey and a still-extant magnificent shrine to house the body of Edward the Confessor), and Edward received a disciplined education - reading and writing in Latin and French, with training in the arts, sciences and music.

In 1254, Edward travelled to Spain for an arranged marriage at the age of 15 to 9-year-old Eleanor of Castile. Just before Edward's marriage, Henry III gave him the duchy of Gascony, one of the few remnants of the once vast French possessions of the English Angevin kings. Gascony was part of a package which included parts of Ireland, the Channel Islands and the King's lands in Wales to provide an income for Edward. Edward then spent a year in Gascony, studying its administration.

Edward spent his young adulthood learning harsh lessons  from Henry III's failures as a king, culminating in a civil war in which he fought to defend his father. Henry's ill-judged and expensive intervention in Sicilian affairs (lured by the Pope's offer of the Sicilian crown to Henry's younger son) failed, and aroused the anger of powerful barons including Henry's brother-in-law Simon de Montfort. Bankrupt and threatened with excommunication, Henry was forced to agree to the Provisions of Oxford in 1258, under which his debts were paid in exchange for substantial reforms; a Great Council of 24, partly nominated by the barons, assumed the functions of the King's Council.

Henry repudiated the Provisions in 1261 and sought the help of the French king Louis IX (later known as St Louis for his piety and other qualities). This was the only time Edward was tempted to side with his charismatic and politically ruthless godfather Simon de Montfort - he supported holding a Parliament in his father's absence.  However, by the time Louis IX decided to side with Henry in the dispute and civil war broke out in England in 1263, Edward had returned to his father's side and became de Montfort's greatest enemy. After winning the battle of Lewes in 1264 (after which Edward became a hostage to ensure his father abided by the terms of the peace), de Montfort summoned the Great Parliament in 1265 - this was the first time cities and burghs sent representatives to the parliament. (Historians differ as to whether de Montfort was an enlightened liberal reformer or an unscrupulous opportunist using any means to advance himself.)

In May 1265, Edward escaped from tight supervision whilst hunting. On 4 August, Edward and his allies out manoeuvred de Montfort in a savage battle at Evesham; de Montfort predicted his own defeat and death 'let us commend our souls to God, because our bodies are theirs ... they are approaching wisely, they learned this from me.' With the ending of the civil war, Edward worked hard at social and political reconciliation between his father and the rebels, and by 1267 the realm had been pacified.

In April 1270 Parliament agreed to an unprecedented levy of one-twentieth of every citizen's goods and possessions to finance Edward's Crusade to the Holy Lands. Edward left England in August 1270 to join the highly respected French king Louis IX on Crusade.  At a time when popes were using the crusading ideal to further their own political ends in Italy and elsewhere, Edward and King Louis were the last crusaders in the medieval tradition of aiming to recover the Holy Lands. Louis died of the plague in Tunis before Edward's arrival, and the French forces were bought off from pursuing their campaign. Edward decided to continue regardless: 'by the blood of God, though all my fellow so."
