30) Richard Law (1607-1687) and Margaret (Kilbourne) law- arrived 1638 with his wife Margaret Kilbourne.

Richard Law was the King’s attorney in England. He moved to new world after the original settlers and became Town clerk. He served 24 years as selectman from 1641-1664, as Representative for New Haven from 1653-1665, as Representative to Connecticut legislature for 1666, 1669, 1672.
Richard’s grandson – Jonathan Law Jr. (son of Jonathan Law and Sarah Clark) was one of the earliest Harvard graduates and became Governor of CT from 1741-1750.

31)  Thomas Jones (1618-1654)  & Mary (unk) ( ?-1650) –  arrived before 1639

He arrived in Connecticut in 1639 to the area now known as Guilford with a group from Surrey lead by Henry Whitfield. They bought land from the Menuncatuck Indians. The group hastily built the meeting house, still standing in 1939 known as “The Old Stone House”.  Families of Early Guilford, Connecticut, Vol. II

There were several Thomas Jones born circa 1600 who were in New England in the mid 1600’s.    At least five are clearly documented.   I am reasonably confident that our Ancestor is the Thomas Jones (abt 1618-1654) that was one of the original inhabitants of Guilford CT.   The date he arrived in the new world is unknown but it was before 1639 when he is documented in Guilford.  One source has him coming to America in 1635 with Mr. Whitfield landing in New Haven CT.

On June 1, 1639 the 39 original families to inhabit Guilford signed a convenant. Thomas Jones as well as Francis Bushnell signed that covenant, which is significant because 24 years later, the children of Thomas Jones and Francis Bushnell are wed.

Thomas arrived in Guilford, CT at 22 years old and most likely married his wife there.  Her name was Mary, but her last name is unknown.  It may have been Carter or Howard, but that is unproven.

  • Her surname was not North, as Mary North was the wife of a different Thomas Jones who was a Blacksmith living in Massachusetts with his wife and 6 children (see below).

Our ancestors, Thomas & Mary Jones, had four children, but the youngest, Thomas, passed away as an infant in 1651, a month after his mother died.  After the death of his wife and son, Thomas Jones Sr., returned to England where he contracted small pox and passed away in 1654.  Their surviving children, Samuel, Sarah & Nathaniel, remained in America.

Thomas’ eldest son, Samuel Jones (1641-1704) married Mary Bushnell (daughter of Francis) in Saybrook CT abt. 1663.

  • The son of Samuel & Mary, John Jones (1676-1721) married Elizabeth Dann (1686-1731) in Stamford in 1702.
    • John & Elizabeth’s son, Thomas Jones (1719-  ) married Mary Demille or Daniel.

Scofield (1831-1918) –  Harry F. Scofield(1870-1956)-  Beatrice P. (Scofield) Syska (1906-1945) 

The other Thomas Jones:

  1. Thomas Jones (1598-1680), wife Mary North, Gloucester MA.  This Thomas Jones is said to have lived in New London CT and is often confused with the Thomas Jones from Guilford CT.  He was in CT in 1651, but was back in Gloucester, MA by 1653 where he was made a freeman.  All of his children were born in either England or Hingham MA and none of them lived in CT.  This Thomas died in Hull MA in 1680.  His will lists his children as Sarah, Abraham, Thomas, Ephraim, John & Hannah.  His wife, Mary North, died in 1650.
  2.  Thomas Jones (1602-1681), wife Ann, Hingham/ Gloucester MA
  3. Thomas Jones (1608-1666), wife Abigail, Charlestown MA
  4.  Thomas Jones (  – 1651), wife Abigail, Boston/Manchester, MA

(Scofield) Syska (1906-1945)

12) David Selleck (1614-1654) & Susanna (Kibby) Selleck (1616-1713) 

 On July 24, 1633, John Winthrop’s journal mentions the Dorchester arrival  of a ship with about eighty passengers and twelve cows. Prior to it’s arrival, the ship had been forced into the western islands due to a leak.  The portuguese inhabitants treated the passengers well and they stayed for 3 weeks, but 20 passengers died from pestilent fever. Once repaired, the ship, crew and remaining passengers sailed to New England. David Selleck was among those that survived the journey arriving in Dorchester, MA in 1633.  

Three years later, on 1 October 1636, David returned to his homeland to marry Susannah Kibby, daughter of Henry and Rachel Kibby.  They returned to New England to start their new life and family. 

David, born in Overstowey, Somerset England, the son of Robert Selleck, was a soap boiler, merchant and seaman who settled in Boston, where he and Susanna were church members in 1644 and their seven children were born.

He was also reputed to be involved in bringing Irish children over as indentured servants and there does appear to be some evidence to support this, though I have not investigated it in detail.    

Two of their sons,  John & Jonathan, came to Stamford in 1660 and, following in their father’s footsteps, started a shipping and trade business. The brothers married two sisters who were the daughters of Richard & Margaret (Kilbourne) Law.  The younger brother, John, was lost at sea in 1689, possibly captured by the French.    

Jonathan Selleck Sr. (1641-1713) married Abigail Law (1643-1711) in Stamford in 1667.  Their two sons also married two sisters, the daughters of Nathan Gold.  Our ancestor, Jonathan Selleck Jr. (1664-1710)  married Abigail Gold

  • David died while on an expedition to Virginia in 1654, presumably killed by pirates.

13) William Newman (1610-1676) 

is believed to have arrived in America in 1633 or 1634 with his parents who settled first in Ispwich, MA.  William, a shoemaker, was granted 5 acres of land in Stamford in 1642 and married his wife, Elizabeth Bowstreet (1611-1676), also in Stamford in 1644.

William & Elizabeth’s daughter, Hannah, married John Holly Jr.

14)  DAVID PHIPPEN/Fitzpen (1590- bef. 1650) & Sarah (unknown) Phippen Hull (  -1659) and familyarrived on the “Recovery of London” in 1634.

David was born in Weymouth, Co. Dorset in 1585 and married Sarah (unknown) about 1617.   Their first 7 children were born in England and emigrated with their parents in 1634.   The Phippen family settled first in Hingham MA., then Boston where David was granted a houselot in 1641,  and appointed constable on 13 March 1646/7.  David died in 1650.  Sarah remarried George Hull, but died before August 1659.   

Their daughter Sarah (Phippen) Yeo Gold (1633-1694) first married Thomas Yeo, but after his death in 1658, married Major Nathan Gold (1623-1694). Sarah & Nathan settled in Fairfield Ct. where they raised seven children of their own including Abigail Gold (1665-1711) who married Jonathan Selleck Jr. (1664-1710).

15) John Brundage (Brondish) (1593-1639 ) and Rachel (Hubbard) Brundage – arrived about 1634. 

John, a tanner, was born in 1593 in Co. Suffolk England. He married Rachel Hubbard in England in 1621.  Rachel Hubbard’s ancestry it not clear.  One theory is that she is the daughter of Elizabeth Hubbard, granddaughter of James & Naomi (Cooke) Hubbard. 

John and Rachel came to America with their children in 1634, settling first in Watertown, MA where John was made a Freeman in 1635, then moving to Wethersfield CT.  John died suddenly in 1639 most likely by suicide.  

A confirmation given by his widow states, ‘but Providence so disposing of the aforesayd John Brundishe that before the tym that the mony was due & ye writing(?) confermed He put an end unto his lyf.’  

Their son, John Brundage Jr.(1637-1697) married Hannah Hunt (1639-1721), daughter of William & Elizabeth Hunt.   John & Hannah’s daughter, Ruth Brundage (1672-1742), married Richard Scofield (1650 – 1726) in 1689.

16) Robert Rose (1594-1665) and Margery (Evered) Rose – came from Ispwich, Suffolk, England in 1634 aboard the ‘Francis’ with their 8 children, including 15 year old twins- Robert and John.   Robert Sr. most likely settled initially in Watertown MA and soon after moved to Wethersfield CT.   

He was a soldier, receiving 50 acres for his service in the Pequot war in 1637, and served as Constable in Wethersfield as well as on a number of town committees.  He then moved to Totoket, which later became Branford CT., and is considered one of the founders of that town.   

 

 

Robert Rose Jr. married Rebecca (unknown) about 1655.  Their daughter Rebecca Rose (1657-1728) married Obadiah Stevens (1644-1702) in 1678.  

The daughter of Rose & Obadiah, Rose Stevens (1619-1683), married Jonathan Slawson in 1711. 

The Rose/Stevens/Slawson/ Selleck family tree is quite complex.  The tree has three sets of cousins marrying eachother.  In 1761 Lydia Lockwood married her 2nd cousin Jonathan Slawson.  Their son, Daniel Slawson married his 2nd cousin, Betsey Dann, in 1796. Then in 1880, Daniel & Betsey’s great granddaughter, Sarah F. Slawson, married her 3rd cousin, Sanders Selleck.

17) Jeffrey Ferris (1610-1666) and Mary (-1658) – arrived in 1634.
Jeffrey, born in Leicestershire, England in 1610, sailed to America with his wife, Mary (unknown) and first child in 1634, settling initially in Watertown, then moving to Wethersfield and finally to Stamford about 1640.  Jeffrey is cited as one of the pioneers in Stamford at the end of 1642. 
 
He moved again and, in 1656, eleven men including Jeffry Ferris peti­tioned to be accepted under the New Haven jurisdiction, founding the town known as Greenwich CT.
His first wife, Mary, died in 1658 and he married 2nd Susanna (Norman) Lockwood, widow of Sergeant Robert Lockwood.  Jeffrey’s marriage contract (a colonial pre-nup) with Susannah pledges financial obligations to the children of Susannah & Robert Lockwood.  Susannah died in 1661 and Jeffrey married his 3rd wife Judith Feake Palmer.  Jeffrey died in Greenwich, CT May 31, 1666.
Jeffrey & Mary’s daughter, Mary Ferris (1640-1708) married Jonathan Lockwood (1634-1688), who was her step-brother and the son of Robert Lockwood & Susanna (Norman) Lockwood Ferris.  The date of their marraige is unknown, but was before Jeffrey’s death in 1666, as the marriage is referenced in his will.

     18) Thomas Stevens (1623-1658) most probably arrived aboard the Abigail in 1635. 
       He appears to have come alone, although he would have only been 12 years old.  He may be the son of, or otherwise related, to John Stevens who received a house lot in Stamford in 1641, but so far I haven’t found any real evidence of a relationship.    
 
Th   Thomas married Ann (unknown) in Connecticut about 1642/3 and settled in Stamford having four sons and one daughter.  He died in 1658 while his children were still young.  His estate was inventoried in 1660, but it was not administered until 11 years later, most likely due to Ann’s 2nd marriage at the time to Francis Holmes.  The County Court at Fairfield, CT appointed “ye eldest son”, Obadiah Stevens, to administer the estate on 14 Mar 1671.  His son, Ephraim, died young and unmarried, thus his share was divided among the remaining siblings in 1677.  Records includes signatures of Obadiah Stevens and brother-in-law Obadiah Seely on behalf of Esther Stevens Seely. 
Son of Thomas and Ann, Obadiah Stevens (abt. 1646-1702) married Rebecca Rose (1657-1728), daughter of Robert & Rebecca (Sherwood) Rose.   Obadiah & Rose’s son, Thomas Stevens (1679 – 1774) married  Sarah (unknown).  We are related to two of their daughters, Rachel (Stevens) Lockwood & Lydia (Stevens) Dann.
Thomas & Ann’s daughter, Esther Stevens (abt. 1650-  1711)  married Obadiah Seeley Jr. (1646-1679/80) son of Obadiah & Mary (Angell) Miller Seeley.  Their son, Obadiah Seeley III (1670-1711) married Susannah Finch (1671-1745).
