    Other Events:

    • Fact: Son of Henry Whitney

    Notes:

    Name:
    "Whitney Genealogy": John Whitney was probably born before his father went to Southold, as the fact that he was of full age before 20 Jan. 1665/66, is indicated by the following vote:

    At a Towne meting held the 20th of Jan. 1665, granted vnto John Whitne the sonne of Henry Whitney......oinse unto his father's home lott extending from the.....Brow of the hill lying by the hi...wwigh Leading to the .....2 Rodds....cartpath by the sayd Falls.


    He settled, with his father, in Norwalk; followed his business, of millwright and miller; succeeded him in the possession of the mill and homestead; and there married, 17 march 1674-5, Elizabeth Smith, dau. of Richard Smith.

    At a town meeting December 27th 1677. At ye aforesayd meting it was voted and agreed on between the towne and the miller, John Whitne, that the towns men are to carrry their corne to the mill upon the third and sixt dayes of the weak, comonly called Tuesday & Fryday, which days he is to Attend to grindle in & if the sayd John can clere the mill of the corne that is brought in the aforesaid two days, or before, then the Rest of the dayes of ye wee he may take to atend his own ocatins, but if he cannot clere the mill of the corne sesonably brought in, he must clere it before he leaues.

    He built a fulling-mill at Norwalk, which he gave, 14 Ap 1707, to his son John Whitney, with needful conveniences of land and water,

    to Injoye use and improve, so long as there shall be a grist or corne mill maintained by the sd John Whitney, Senr., or his heirs for to grind the Inhabitants corne, According to his covenant with the sayt Towne and noe longer. This I do Grant unto my sayd sonn so long as he or his heires shall se cause to maintaine a fulling Mill there where it now standeth and no Longer; provided also that in case the sayd John Whittney son of sayd John Whitney, senior, shall marry, and he Decease, and leave a widow, she shall Injoy the privilledges above mentioned so long as she shall remain his widow, & noe longer, and then to return to his Eldest brother surviving; and in case he shall Refuse, then the next surviving, and so successively to all the Brethren of the sayd John Whittney Junior.

    He sold to his son, John Whitney, 8 July 1712, in consideration of a bond to pay certain sums of money the grist-mill, and land belonging thereto, taking, 9 July 1712, a life-lease of the premises. His son reconveyed the whole property, three days before his death; and a month later, the father secured the fulling-mill to the widow during the minoriy of her son, with remainder tohim. He finally sold the grist-mill, 20 May 1713, to his son, Joseph Whitney, for which Joseph was to pay his father's debts, give him one half of all grain that should be received for toll at the mill during the father's life, if demanded; "and, after ye decease of ye said John Whitney, to maintain his mother, Elizabeth Whitne (if she survive) Honourably During her natural life, if she remaine ye sd John Whitne's widdow," and within four years after JohnWhitney's death, pay to his heirs L50 "in Provision pay at price currant equivalent to two thirds of said sum in money."

    He probably died, at Norwalk, in 1720, as his son-in-law, Joseph Keller, was appointed administrator of his estate, 11 oct. 1720. His widow was a member of the First Congregational Church in Norwalk in 1725, and was living as late as 3 Apr 1741, when her son Joseph Whitney, in a codicil to his will, provided for her future support; but the date of her death is not known.
