    Other Events:

    • Also Known As: Nathaniel Slauson
    • Occupation: Between 1776 and 1780; Tax Collector, Kent, Conn.

    Notes:

    Born probably at Bedford, Westchester County, NY. Moved to Stamford Connecticut with his parents about 1697. First to use name SLOSSON, although he was referred to a SLASON, SLAWSON and SLASSON. He was left a full orphan in 1706 and removed to Deerfield, Franklin County, Mass. Raised by his mother's relative. After his marriage to Margaret Belding they resided at Norwalk until 1739, when they became part of the original group of settlers at Kent, Litchfield County, Connecticut. Interred in the family cemetery at Kent. He bought nine acres of land at Captain's Plain, in Norwalk, Conn., Feb. 24, 1720-1721; and five acres at Kent, in Norwalk, March 1, 1720-1721; and in each deed was described as of "Deerfield, Mass." He probable began his residence in Norwalk directly after buying the land; for he was called "of Norwalk," Nov. 16, 1721, when Samuel Belden gave him a deed of all of said Belden's right in the undivided lands in Norwalk, "in consideration of the love and good will which I have and do bear toward my loving cousin, Nathaniel Slawson of said Norwalk." He was chosen constable of Kent, Dec. 4, 1739; the town meeting was held at his house Sept. 1, 1740; and in 1744, he was a lister, and his own estate was valued at L55 10S. They joined the church in Kent, July 12, 1711.[Slosson 11-20-00 Greene.FTW]

    Moved to Stamford, CT with his parents about 1697. He was left a full orphan in 1706, and removed to Deerfield Franklyn Co., MA, where he was raised by his Mother's relatives. About 1717 or 1718 he returned to Connecticut, and resided in Norwalk, Fairfield County. Married 11 December 1719 at Deerfield to Margret Belding. They resided at Norwalk, mostly in the portion known as Wilton until 1739, when they became part of a group of original settlers at Kent, Litchfield County, Connecticut. He died 8 Mar 1787. They are interred in the family cemetery at Kent, CT.
    Nathaniel, after being orphaned, was brought up by Daniel Belding (1648-1731), who was undoubtedly related to his Mother. This is further substantiated by the fact that Daniel Belding had a sister, Susanna, and was therefore in all probability Nathaniel's uncle. Daniel Belding's son was William Belding, who married Margaret Arms, and their eldest child was Margaret Belding, who married Nathaniel. Nathaniel and his wife were, therefore, first cousins, once removed.
    With Nathaniel, the SLOSSON spelling of the name is first used, with the
    exception of his eldest children (daughters), all the dedcendents of Nathaniel
    have used this spelling. His father's (Eleazer's) will mentioning him by name,
    was proved under the name SLASON. His marriage record, on file in Deerfield,
    gives his name as SLASSON. When he returned from Deerfield to Norwalk with his bride he purchased land on 1 Feb 1720/1 and made a further purchase on 1 Mar 1729/1. In both these deeds he was "NATHANIEL SLASON". On 16 Nov 1721, Samuel Belden (Belding) (for differences of spelling of this name see notes for Eleazer Slason) presented him with a deed for rights in land "in consideration of the love and good will I have and do bear toward my cousin, Nathaniel Slawson, of said Norwalk". This is particularly interesting for two reasons: first; the reference to his "cousin". Previous genealogist, failing to have the connection between Nathaniel's mother and the Belding family, interpred this to mean "cousin" as a result of his marriage to Margaret Belding. Actually, Samuel meant what he stated when he said "cousin", and it is somewhat far reasoning for him to be guilty of publicly stating his "love" for a cousin-in-law. Nor did the donor say "Nathaniel Slawson, husband of my cousin, Margaret Slawson", which would be the usual phraseology in those days of meticulous accuracy as attested by the many documents so worded that are on file for other families, as well as other branches of this family. On close scrutiny, there seems to be no question that Samuel Belden (Belding) was acknowledging the blood relation existing between himself and Nathaniel Slawson.
    He bought 9 acres of land at Captain's Plain in Norwalk in 1720 or 1721, 5 acres in Kent; and on 11 Jun 1722 two parcels of land on E side of the E branch of Pimpsewaug River at Pimpsewaug, Norwalk, and on 14 Aug 1729, 1 1/2 acres from his father-in-law, William Belding adjoining his homestead in the Parish of Wilton which included the districts of Kent and Pimpsewaug, CT.
    He and Margaret were members of the church at Wilton at the ordination of Rev. Wm. Gaylord 13 Feb 1732-3.
    In the first division of lands at Kent in May, 1738, he drew lot #21 about 3
    miles NE of Kent village, in the district called Flanders; and tradition says he
    settled thereon about 1 Nov 1739. He was chosen constable of Kent 4 Dec 17339.
    They joined the church at Kent 12 Jul 1741.

    "George Slawson : An American Pioneer" by Harold D. Slosson - Moved from his birthplace in Stamford to Westchester Co., NY, where in 1681 he became one of the original patentees of Bedford, New Yor,

    Eleazer married Susanna BELDING 1680, Bedford, Westchester, New York. Susanna (daughter of William BELDEN and Thomasine (Tamsen) SHERWOOD) was born 05 Nov 1651, Wethersfield, Hartford, Connecticut, USA; died 1706, Stamford, Fairfield, Connecticut, USA. [Group Sheet]


  2. 9.  Susanna BELDING was born 05 Nov 1651, Wethersfield, Hartford, Connecticut, USA (daughter of William BELDEN and Thomasine (Tamsen) SHERWOOD); died 1706, Stamford, Fairfield, Connecticut, USA.

    Notes:

    [Slosson 11-20-00 Greene.FTW]

    No actual marriage records seem to exist, although there is no questions that
    her given name was Susanna, there has never previiously been an effort to
    establish her maiden name as Belding. With direct proof lacking, this
    conclusion has beeen reached by certain other corroborating data, which is
    explained more fully under the note for her son, Nathaniel. It would appear from
    the evidence available that she came to Bedford as a married woman, and that she
    was a widow at the time of her marriage to Eleazer Slason. No record has been
    found covering any previous marriage, and the compiler, although morally
    convinced the statement is correct, does not submit it as a fact. William and
    Thomasine Belding were among the early and prominent settlers of Deerfield, MA,
    although the town was not settled until after Susanna Belding was born. There
    is also no doubt that the Belding family of Deerfield and the Belden family of
    Norwalk were one and the same family. The Deerfield records usually used the
    Belding spelling, and these records make frequent references to the individuals
    of the family who moved to Norwalk. The Norwalk records rarely spell the name
    other than Belden, although the Belding spelling is known. Whenever the name
    enters the records of Stamford there seems to be an unsettled quality to the
    matter, and both spellings are used on occaision, apparently indiscriminately.
    The Deerfield records show Susanna's birth date and connection to the family,
    and trace the relationships mentioned in the note for son, Nathaniel.
