    Notes:

    Name:
    He is said to have been of Hertfordshire descent; came to Hartford about 1647 or 8, perhaps from Ipswich. Others of the name went from there to Wenham. A Thomas Burhan aged 18, "imbarqued for the Barbadoes, Nov. 20, 1635, Peter Blackloe, master; took the oath of Allegenance and Supremacie; examined by the minister of the Towne of Gravesend." (N.E. Reg., 14, p. 357) His name first appears on the Colonial Records of Conn., Dec. 7, 1648; was made Freeman, May 21, 1657, having been elected Constable the previous February and Chimney Viewer Feb. 11, 1658/9; was in the list of Freemen at Windsor, Oct. 11, 1669. He was a large land holder and speculator, buying land from the Indians. In June, 1659, he was required "to appear at ye Court in Octbr to answr for his former cariage, complayned of to ye Court," etc. He was a lawyer and an educated man, and this complaint was in regard to one of his cases. He was attorney in 1662, for Abigail Betts, accused of blasphemy. For offending the Court in his successful defense of her, "saving her neck," as the court record has it, he was condemned to "ye prison keep", but the Court dared not attempt to carry this sentence into effect, for fear of an appeal to England. They deprived him, however, of his citizenship, for a time, and prohibited him from acting as attorney except in his own cases. His offense seems to have been that he compelled the Court to try the woman by the English rather than the Mosaic law, which they preferred and were in the habit of using. At the General Court in April, some of his purchase from Tantonimo, Sachem of the Podunk Indians, was set aside, on the ground that the lands were not the Sachem's to sell. His house on the east side of the River, was one of the five fortified and garrisoned during the Indian War, 1675.

    Name:
    He was made Freeman in May, 1654; was admitted to the church May 3, 1663 and among the early settlers on the east side of the Great River. He was one of the Troopers under Major John Mason in March, 1657/8; and in 1675, he served as a Dragoon in King Philip's War, being a member of the Windsor troop of horse. He bought a house and lot of John Moses on the west side of the street directly opposite Joseph Loomis, Jr. Increase Mather tells of the overturning of a boat in which Mrs. Loomis and some other women were crossing the river, they having crossed to assist at a confinement. The river was full of ice and they were rescued with great difficulty.

    Notes:

    Name:
    Mrs. Loomis m. (2) John Case of Simsbury and long outlived him. The date of her birth is usually given as 1638, but it was probably tow or three years earlier as Mathew Grant in his church record, gives only three children as born in Windsor to Deacon John Moore, (p. 94 of that record.) She must have been born in Dorchester, where she was baptized before her mother removed to Windsor. "Nathaniell Loomes & Elisabeth more both of Windsor wear 1653 maried Novemb 24, 1653"

    Other Events:

    • Fact: Son of John and Agnes Loomis of Thaxted, Essex, England
    • Death: 23 Aug 1652, Windsor, Hartford, Connecticut, USA

    Notes:

    Excerpt from "Dawes-Gates Ancestral Lines":
    The parents of Joseph Loomis, of New England, were probably John and Agnes Loomis, of Braintree, co. Essex, England. If so, he was their only son and the executor of the father's will in May and June, 1619.......
    They remained in England until the spring of 1638 when, on april 11, with their eight children, they embarked at Maldon (the nearest seaport to Braintree) on the "Susan and Ellen" on which their goods also came and arrived in Boston on July 17, following. It is theorized that they spent their first year in this country at Dorchester though proof of that opinion has not yet been found, but in the summer and fall of 1639 the family removed overland to Windsor, Connecticut, probably in the company with the Reverend Ephraim Huet who arried there August 17, 1639.......
    Joseph served on a jury on March 2, 1642, and on another in company with NATHANIEL FOOTE in September 1644. On January 6, 1650, he was sued by William Buell for trespass and for damage to the extent of seven bushels of corn; one may infer that his stock got away from him...

    Name:
    "The Hull Family in America": Joseph Loomis, the father-in-law of Lieut. Josiah Hull, before coming to New England, was a woolen draper of Brintree essex County, England, and was married in said county, June 30, 1614, to Mary White, daughter of Robert White and his wife Bridget Alger. He came to America in the ship "Susan and Ellen", leaving England April 1, 1638.....

    He was a woolen draper in Braintree, co Essex, Engl., and came in the ship "Susan and ellen," leaving London, april 11, 1638 and arriving at Boston, July 17, 163, as is proved by the deposition of Joseph Hills of Charlestown. (N.E. Reg., 30, p. 459.) He brought with him his sons, Joseph, John, Thomas, Samuel and Nathaniel, and daughters, Mary, Elizabeth, and another who m. Nicholas Olmstead. He is supposed to have come to Windsor, Conn. in company with rev. Ephraim Huit, who arrived there Au. 17, 1639. Feb 2, 1640, he was granted twenty-one acres of land adjoining the Farmington river, and his house was on what was known as the "the Island" because at every freshet it became temporarily an island. Stiles says "This Ancestral Home" has been in perpetual possession of his descendants coming down in an unbroken regular succession to Epaphras Loomis,who sold it to Rev. George Loomis, who in turn sold it to John Mason Loomis. He served twice on the jury of the Particular Court, March 2, 1642/3 and September, 1644.

    Joseph married Mary WHITE 30 Jun 1614, Messing, Essex, England. Mary (daughter of Robert WHITE and Bridget ALLGAR) was born Bef 24 Aug 1590, England; was christened 24 Aug 1590; died 23 Aug 1652, Windsor, Hartford Co., Connecticut. [Group Sheet]

  3. 14.  Deacon John MOORE was born , England (son of Thomas MOORE and ? UNKNOWN); died Between 14-16 Sep 1677, Windsor, Hartford, Connecticut, USA.

    Notes:

    Name:
    He came as a Deacon of the Dorchester church in 1630, (History of Dorchester, p. 68), probably in the "Mary and John." He with Thomas Moore, Rev. John Warham, Roger Williams, Ralph Mousall, and others were made Freemen of Massachusetts, May 18, 1631. He went with Warham to Windsor in 1635 or 6. He has been confused with what seems to have been another John Moore, whose name appears on the Dorchester Records in 1638; he was one of the chief men at Windsor; was on the jury of the Particular Court in October, 1642; Representative at the May session of 1661 and many times after; "Ordayned Deacon Janu 11, 1651," (O.C.R.) and was an excellent and esteemed citizen. At a session of the General Court, held March 13, 1661/2, he and "Scery Daniel Clark" were granted 400 acres to be divided between them. He dealt largely in real estate; farmed; manufactured pike heads and built a ferry about 1671; was a contributor to the Connecticut fund for the relief of the poor in other colonies.

    The will of Deacon John Moore shows that he left four daughters and a son John, but as Thomas and Elizabeth Moore are recorded on the Dorchester Records as "children" baptized apparently at the same tie and as Elizabeth is known to have been the daughter of Deacon John Moore, it seem as if Thomas must have been a son of his. (Records of First Ch., Dorchester, p. 149.) Stiles says the wife of John Moore was Abigail and that he married her June 16, 1639, but in the record of John Moore's family in the Old Windsor Church record, we find: Abigail Moore Feb. 14, 1639. then follows: Mindwell, dau. of John Moore, b. 10July 1643. The original looks as if Abigail was interlined after Mindwell had been written. The records says nothing about marriage or wife and the Abigail here recorded was evidently the first child. b. 14 Feb. 1639/40. She was the first child born in Windsor.

    John married Abigail UNKNOWN 16 Jun 1639. [Group Sheet]
