    Notes:

    Name:
    "Connecticut Ancestry": Thomas Newman died at Stamford between 21 May and 2 October 1714, the dates of his will and its probate. No basis has been found for estimating the date of his birth, since none of the dates of his marriage or the births of any of his children seem to have been recorded. Some references give the year of his birth as 1643, but without giving any reasons.

    His wife's name was Mary ? as given in his will and the distribution of his estate. We have no further information on her, including whether or not she was the other of all of his children.

    His will was dated at Stamford on 21 May 1714, and mentioned his wife Mary, and his children John, Nathaniel, Jonathan, Thomas and son in law Daniel Briggs. The executrix was to be his wife Mary Newman, and the witnesses were John Holly, James June and Ebenezer Smith. The original will has been preserved, and it can be seen that he signed with a signature, although with a very unsteady hand. His inventory was taken on 2 September and filed 1 November 1714.

    His children were parties to an agreement made on 1 Dec 1729 along with Robert Harris, to build a saw mill "on the Mianus river about eight rods south of Nathaniel Newman's dwelling house." The agreement was witnessed by John Bell, and signed by Robert Harris, John Newman, Daniel Briggs, Jonathan Newman, Thomas Newman, and Nathaniel Newman (his X mark).

Generation: 4

  1. 8.  William NEWMAN was born Abt 1610, England (son of Thomas NEWMAN and Mary UNKNOWN); died Between 18 Aug and 18 Nov 1676, Stamford, Fairfield, Connecticut, USA.

    Notes:

    Name:
    "Connecticut Ancestry": William Newman was born about 1610, and died at Stamford between 18 August and 18 November 1676, the dates of his will and its probate..A wife Elizabeth ? for whom we have no further information, was named in his will.

    He and his father were both settlers of Stamford during its first year, 1642. They probably did not come from Wethersfield with the majority of the other early settlers, but their place of origin is still unknown.

    the lands of William Newman were recorded at Stamford on 1 March 1649/50 as follows:

    1. One house and home lot containing an acre and a half, Bounded by William Graves to the east, John Elliot west, abutting the highway north and the meadows south;
    2. Also another house and house lot, containing 3 acres, bounded by Nicholas Knapp and common land to the north, Henry Ackerly, William Potter and Common Land south, butting to the highway west and the common east;
    3. In the North Field, 12 acres of upland, bounded by David Mitchell north, Nicholas Theale south, butting to the fence east, and the River west;
    4. In the same field, 10 more acres of upland, bounded by Thomas Newman south, Nicholas Knapp north, butting to the highway east, and the River west;
    5. In the same field, 3 more acres of upland, bounded by the rails (fence) east, Henry Smith and Francis Bell west, Thomas Neman south, Francis Bell north;
    6. In Rocky Neck, 7 1/2 acres of upland, 4 1/2 acres of the said parcel is waste land, bounded by Francis Bell to the south, William Mead to the north, butting to William Mead, thomas Morehouse & Thomas Newman west, Nicholas Knapp east, a highway through the west end of it;
    7. In the East Field, 4 acres of meadow, bounded by Thomas Hyatt south, Vincent Simkins north, butting Henry Ackerly west, the highway east, with 12 rods fence as it was layed out by ?;
    8. In the same field, 6 acres meadow down in the South field fence belonging (?), bounded by Vincent Simkins on the south and north, butting to the highway east, Jeffery Ferris and John Finch west;
    9. In the same field, 2 more acres of meadow, bounded by Daniel Scofield south, Henry Ackerly north, butting to the highway west, and Jonas Weed east.

    Difficulties with the Court at New Haven in 1654 (along with his father) have already been described. Just prior to his father's death, on 25 May 1659, the New Haven Court turned to William Newman to settle a dispute that was current in the colony concerning "wrong done in the sizes of shooes." William Newman of Stamford was said to have been in the possession of an instrument that he had brought from England, that was capable of determining the correct sizes of shoes, and that instrument was ordered to be bought to New Haven to serve as model for a standard to be made to serve the needs of the entire Colony. There is no further information on this subject, and we may assume that William either complied, or the illness and death of his father intervened in the completion of this project.

    His will was dated at Stamford on 18 August (6th month) and probated on 18 November (9th month) 1676. He mentioned his wife Elizabeth, and children Thomas, Daniel, "John" (who died before the probate), Sarah, Elizabeth and Hannah. His inventory was taken and filed on the date of probate. Also on the same date of probate, an agreement was made between and among the (remaining) heirs.

    Notes:

    Name:
    The New England and Historical Genealogical register:

    In 1683 and 1684, John Austin, Thomas Austin and Elizabeth (Austin) Finch, all of Greenwich, gave receipts to their father-in-law (i.e., stepfather) William Hubbard for their portion of their deceased father JohnAustin's estate. John was probably a commercial tobacco grower, since his inventory contained, "a tobaca wheele, bouls & traies," ad L4 worth of tobacco -- a substantial amount considering his house and land together were valued at L12.

    Writing in 1860, James Savage assumed that this was the same John Austin who had appeared briefly in New London, Connecticut, from 1647 to after 1651. While this may be the case, Savage did not mention his source(s) and no records have been found to confirm that this was indeed the same person. the possibility still exists, however, since a John Austin did own land in New London in 1648-49, and apparently sold at least some of it to Samuel Lathrop there sometime before 13 June 1655. John Austin was not in New London after that time, but no evidence has been found (other than the coincidence in timing) that connects him with anyone in Stamford or Greenwich. As already mentioned above, John Austin of Greenwich was certainly not part of the New Haven Austin family.

    John Austin was one of eleven Greenwich men who pledged their allegiance to the Colony of New Haven on 6 October 1656. Greenwich itself was loosely connected with the Connecticut Colony, but not recognized as a separate town until May 1665, after the consolidation of the Connecticut and New Haven colonies. Before 1665, Greenwich people appeared as inhabitants of a fairly independent settlement at various times in the records of Stamford, New Haven, and Fairfield (the nearest other Connecticut colony town.) Therefore, in 1657, John Austin's estate was of concern to both colonies. At that time, new Haven had jurisdiction over Stamford, and so John Austin's inventory was recorded in both of those places, as well as in Fairfield. It should be emphasized, however, that John Austin of Greenwich never lived in any of those three places.
