    Notes:

    Name:
    "Connecticut Ancestry": Jonathan Waterbury was born probably at Stamford about 1651, and died there on 4 or 14 January 1702/03.

    Although his wife is often called "Youne" or "Euni" in the surviving records, her name was Eunice (?) as given in at least one land record, and she also named a daughter Eunice. Most researchers believe that she was Eunice Buxton, daughter of Clement Buxton and his wife, also named Eunice (?). Youne Waterbury married richard Higginbotham at Stamford on 11 December 1707, as his second wife and she died there on 24 May 1710.

    the widow "Unice" Waterbury (her X mark) made an agreement with her son Jonathan Waterbury on 26 July 1707, in which she promised to "build and completely finish for her sd son a dwelling hous at Noroton so called fourty foots in length & twenty foots in breadth & ten foots between the Joints...," in return for his assignment to her of certain rights to his father's estate.

    After their father's death, two of the sons in this family, Jonathan Waterbury and Joseph Waterbury, witnessed a deed of 9 january 1712/13 in which Clement Buxton Sr. sold land west of the Mill River to joseph Smith. Since the designation "senior" was used this was probably the Clement Buxton who lived from 1647 to 1724, probably their mother's brother.

    Many of the children of this family joined as grantors in a deed to Nathan Selleck on 6 January 1724, in which they conveyed a 1 1/2 acre lot in the "Renkon Hooge" (Runkinheage) division that had been their father's Jonathan Waterbury deceased. the grantors were: Jonathan Waterbury, John Newman and Abigail his wife of Stamford, and Benjamin Mead, Moses Ferris and Eunice his wife of Greenwich.

  1. 8.  John WATERBURY was born Abt 1614; died 31 Jul 1658, Stamford, Fairfield, Connecticut, USA.

    Other Events:

    • Baptism: 30 Dec 1621, Sudbury, England

    Notes:

    Name:
    "Connecticut Ancestry": John Waterbury was born say about 1614, based upon the marriage of his daughter Rachel in 1659. However, he may also have been the son of William Waterbury of Sudbury baptized 30 December 1621. He died intestate at Stamford, Connecticut 31 July 1658.

    John Waterbury sold his house and 8 acres of land at Watertown, Massachusetts to Robert Pearce/Pierce on 15 October 1646, and presumably moved about that time to Stamford, where he was first of record in 1650.

    His wife's name was Rose ?, since it was Rose Waterbury who married Joseph Garnsey at Stamford on 11 My 1659. Many early writers have claimed that she was named Rose Lockwood, and this marriage is often found in the secondary literature. Prindle (Gillespie Ancestry) showed, however, that she could not possibly have been a Lockwood, and that she was instead probably named Rose Taylor, that is, a putative daughter of Gregory Taylor of Watertown and Stamford. He was unable to prove this Taylor connection to his own satisfaction, however, and continued to place a question mark before her surname.....

    The connection with the Taylor family, however, is a sure link to this Stamford family's connection with the Massachusetts Bay. Gregory Taylor of Watertown, another passenger of the Winthrop fleet, member of the original Boston Church, and resident of Watertown, also moved from Watertown to Stamford where he died on 24 September 1657. John Waterbury had a claim on the estate of Gregory Taylor at Stamford, as already noted, and our interpretation of this claim is that John Waterbury's mother had become Taylor's wife....

    John Waterbury served as Deputy from Stamford to the General Court of the New Haven Colony in 1657 and 1658 (the year of his death). Prindle assigned an age at death of only "37 or 38 years" in 1658, but when Anderson's estimate of his birth year is used (1614) then his age at death is a bit more reasonable (44 years). this may be an additional reason for following Anderson's caution about the identity of the William and John Waterburys of Sudbury.

    John Waterbury's widow Rose married Joseph Garnsey/Guernsey at Stamford on 11 May 1659, and had a son, Joseph Garnsey Jr., bon 30 june 1662. Waterbury's estate was not settled by the Probate Court until 1669, at which time Joseph Garnsey was appointed administrator, and Mr. Holly and Lieutenant Bell were appointed overseers of the children "and their disposals and portions." On 14 July 1666 and 19 day 12th month (February) 1668 respectively, Zachariah Dibble for his wife Sarah and John Holmes for his wife Rachel, gave receipts to Joseph Garnsey for their shares in the estate of their wives' deceased father, John Waterbury. On 3 July 1674, John, Jonathan and David Waterbury assigned to their father in law Joseph Garnsey their rights to land in Rocky Neck "which our own father Jno. Waterbury deceased bought of Mr. Law of Stamford & is now in ye possession of Jno. Miller of Stamford..." Then, on 12 February 1684/85, Jonathan and David Waterbury discharged their father in law Joseph Garnsey "forever conserning our portions" of their father's estate, having received their portions in full.

    John married Rose TAYLOR 1638, Watertown, Massachusetts. Rose (daughter of Gregory TAYLOR and Achsah ?) was born 1621, England; died Between 12 Feb 1683 and 1684, Stamford, Fairfield, Connecticut, USA. [Group Sheet]

  3. 10.  Clement BUXTON was born Abt 1610, England; died 02 Aug 1657, Stamford, Fairfield, Connecticut, USA.

    Notes:

    Name:
    "Connecticut Ancestry": Clement Buxton died at Stamford on 2 August 1657, one of those Stamford citizens to succumb to the general illness at that time now thought to have been malaria. His parents, and place and date of birth are completely unknown.

    His wife's name was Eunice (?) (also spelled Unica or Uneca or even Unity in the records). After Clement's death, she married (2) at Stamford on 22 July 1658 Peter Brown, whose wife Elizabeth had also died in the summer of 1657 (21 September), probably another malaria victim. Peter Brown died on 22 August 1658, less than a month after this marriage, and "Unica Brown" then married (3) at Stamford on 9 March 1659, Nicholas Knapp. She appears to have died at Stamford in early April 1670. The will of Nicholas Knapp, made on 15 April 1670, probably shortly after her death, after providing for his own natural children, included the following provision for Eunice's daughters: "I give to my two daughters in law (i.e. stepdaughters) Viz: Sarah and Unice Buxton all their others clothes as a free gift: except one hat and one new petticoat which my will is that they should have owned of their portions: also I will and bequeath unto Unice Buxton the new bible as a free gift (also) My will is that the portions due to my two daughters in law, viz: Sarah Buxton and Uneca Boxton out of the estate of their father Clement Buxton I say that their portions be currently payd according to their proportion of that inventorie."

    The lands of Clement "Buckston" were recorded in Stamford on 15 March 1650 (probably 1650/51) as part of the general inventory of real estate being made at that general time....

    By the time of the 1701 tax assessment he had accumulated a real estate valuation of 112 pounds that was among the more substantial holdings in the town.

    His inventory was taken on 3 September 1657 by Richard Law and John Holly, and contained 4 bibles and other books in addition to the usual real estate, livestock and household items, probably indicating that he was a literate man. the same inventory also demonstrated that he had shoe-making equipment, and also clothes made of leather. Jeanne Majdalany studied this inventory in detail as well as those of several others that were recorded in the Town Records, and made the interesting observation that he was, "the only man listed as having a desk and also a wheelbarrow."
