He was a Quaker and in his religious discovery he says; "When I was entred into a married state I saw myself now under former ingagemnts of attending heart-searching & hearing Mr. Mather on the hearts hardness assert that there was no plague like unto that, I was affrighted there at & soon after hearing Mr. Eliot (now of Gilford) on a lecture sermon was so awakened as to resolve no longer to delay but to fall to search my own heart. But I found it hard & difficult work to keep my mind to it & sometimes I found that my heart would slip from ye work almost as soon as I was at it. So that I could find little rest."
He seems to have found that rest as he became a Deacon in the church at Westfield. In 1696 he moved to Lebanon, CT where he helped found the town, and where his name appears often in the early records.

||The Tribulations and Trial of Martha Mead|
By Lee Meade
From Mead-e Family Tree, Vol.1, No. 2, Fall 1996, http://www.meadnewsletter.com/
It is generally believed that life was simpler during the early days of American colonization. The settlers worried about attacks by Indians, but they were few and far between. They had concerns about the weather, but for the most part, the Connecticut climate was mild and crops grew well. Everyone followed a stoic lifestyle, working from dawn to dusk during the week and socializing between intermittal breaks in the day-long Sunday worship service.
However, that wasn't always the way it was. At times, there was social intrigue too that stirred the community to dramatic proportions.
Martha Mead, believed to be the only daughter of William and Philippa Mead of Stamford, unwillingly became the subject of one of the most controversial legal cases in 17th Century New England.
If early records are accurate, Martha was born in the town of Lydd in County Kent, England, about 1632. She had an older brother Joseph, and younger brother John.
After landing at Boston, the Meads moved first to a new settlement at Wethersfield, Conn., and then on to Stamford, where William was one of the community first landowners.
She was just 9 years old when her father received a home lot and five acres of land as one of the original 42 settlers in Stamford. Twelve years later, she married John Richardson of Stamford and seemed to be well on her way to becoming a typical New England housewife.
But there was trouble and considerable tribulation just around the corner for Martha and her family.
Martha had a problem. Several months prior to her wedding, she discovered she was pregnant. She told her parents, her brothers and fiance.
"I don't know how it happened and I don't know who the father is," she confessed to her probably disbelieving audience.
As they attempted to sort through the facts, Martha recalled there was a day while she had been working as a domestic servant in the home of one of the Stamford residents when she lost consciousness during an epileptic seizure. When she came to, she had been taken to a bedroom in the house and, she suggested, may have been raped. There were only two men in the house at the time, and, although Martha knew both of them, she could not identify which one may have been her attacker.
Her husband acknowledged he was not the father, but he did not want her to be castigated in the eyes of the community, so he suggested they move to Roxbury, Mass., a small town near Boston, and live there until after the baby had been born. Outside the immediate family, nobody knew the real reason for the move.
The baby was born, but died within its first month of life, and Martha and John returned to Stamford.
All of this had taken place in 1653, but a year later a rumor surfaced in Stamford that Martha had been pregnant at the time of her wedding, that she had given birth to a baby in Massachusetts and the baby had died under mysterious circumstances.
One can only imagine the excitement the report stirred in the small, conservative Puritan town. For weeks, the gossip about Martha Mead was spoken in hushes. Then it broke into the open, and was brought to the attention of the magistrates in New Haven, the colonial capital of the province.
When Martha was confronted with the charges, she denied she had ever been pregnant. However on Oct. 18, 1654, a Court of Magistrates was called in New Haven to hear the case, and "take whatever action it deemed appropriate."
Present at the hearing were Theophilus Eaton, Esq., Governor of Connecticut; Stephen Goodyeer, Deputy Governor, and Magistrates Samuell Eaton, Francis Newman, Benjamin Fenn and William Leete.
The charge was that "Martha Mead, now the wife of John Richardson of Stamford, was guilty of fornication, proued by her being with child some months before marriage, and that to avoyde or stopp reproach, her husband had carried her to Roxbury in the Massachusets, where she was delivered of a child in January last, at the house of Mr. Joshua Hughes, wch child luied aboute or aboue a moneth and then dyed, but how and in what manner, the court though worth inquirie."
Richardson admitted his wife was with child before marriage, that he knew of her condition, but denied he was the father. He said he took her from Stamford to Roxbury before childbearing to avoid the public shame.
"When did you marry Martha Mead?" the Court asked. "And when did she have the child?"
"I married her at the latter part of wheat harvest," Richardson replied. "The baby was born in January. It passed away less than a month later. We returned to Stamford, but thought there was nothing to be gained by opening our personal discomfort."
Martha confirmed she had been with child before her marriage, but boldly declared, "I neither did - no do - know who is the father." "I was in a fit of swooning in my Master's house in Stamford," she explained. "While I was unconscious, I was carried to a bed in another room and I was taken advantage of. When I came to, I saw Joseph Garnesy in the room, but I do not know it was that abused me."
The court read the written evidence and heard the verbal testimony of several Stamford witnesses. In addition to Garnesy, one other man, John Ross, had been in the house when the incident allegedly occurred. Her brother, Joseph, and several townfolk, including goodwife Knapp, goodwife Stocke, goodwife Buxton, goodwife Webb and goodwife Emry, testified Martha had been subject to "fainting and swooning fitts, mixed with short distempers of frenzy."
In its findings, the court ruled it could do nothing else but find Martha Mead Richardson "guilty as charged, both of knowne fornication and continewed impudent lying, beeleeuing that no woman can be gotten with child without some knowledg, consent and delight in the acting thereof, and that she deserves to be publiquely and severely corrected by whipping, but considering she is now great with child, and according to testimony apt to fall into the aforementioned fitts, with due respect to her condition it is ordered that tenn pounds be paid as a fine to the jurisdiction within a years time for her heinous miscarriages."
The court acknowledged that "John Richardson, and her brother, Joseph Mead, did before the court as sureties ingage, and entered into a recognizance of fifty pounds for ye same, and vnder the same penalty promised and bound themselues that betwixt this and the court of magistrats in May next, they would bring a satisfying certificate from Roxbury concerning ye death of ye child, both wch being duely pformed their ingagmnt and recognizance are voyd & discharged, but till ten stand in force, and in ye meane time if she duely acknowlege her sinn and truly declare who is ye father of the child, the court will consider of some further mitigation."
Final disposition of the case lingered on through three additional hearings.
On May 28, 1656, Joseph Mead and John Richardson appeared in court at New Haven and acknowledged "payment of the fine of tenn pounds which was not required, but they desired forbearance till next Michaelmas, when they then see it paide." The court granted their request.
On Sept. 27, 1657, William Mead, Martha's father, and his youngest son, John, appeared in court petitioning for abatement of two fines. John had been fined ten pounds in a subsequent slander and harassment action, brought by a Stamford neighbor while the fine against Martha and levied against Joseph Mead and John Richardson remained unpaid.
The court considered both and granted that "half of each should be abated, provided the other half be paid forthwith."
The issue was finally put to rest when Joseph brought in two "milch cowes" which he offered as payment of the fines. The court, following a recess to determine the value of the two cows, argued the "cowes" were worth "only eight pound ten shillings," but "in fauour to them" (Joseph Mead and John Richardson), "the court would accept the cows as payment, and acquit and discharge the fines."
As a tragic aftermath, Martha Mead and John Richardson also lost her second baby, who like the first, died early in its infancy. The Richardsons never had any other children of record and shortly after the case was resolved moved from Stamford to nearby Rye, NY.
Although there is nothing to suggest the events were connected, both Joseph and John also left Stamford in 1657, crossing Long Island Sound to become involved in the founding of the town of Hemstead, Long Island. However they liked Connecticut better and two years later returned with their families - not to Stamford, but to its next door neighbour, the new settlement of Hogs Neck, later to be known as Greenwich.
William Mead and his wife, Philippa, remained in Stamford where they lived on the west side of West Street. Philippa died in 1657, possibly during an outbreak of malaria. An epidemic is suspected because records show only 16 deaths the entire year of 1657. Eleven of them occurred during the period between July 21 and Sept. 19.
William, the founding father of the family passed away in 1663, apparently of natural causes. However, neither of his two sons, Joseph and John - nor his daughter, Martha, ever returned to live in Stamford.
There was early speculation that William and Philippa had a fourth child, who died in 1657. There is no evidence of such a birth by Philippa and, in fact, it may have been Martha's second child, who was born in 1655, and died young.
Mead-e Family Tree Editor's Note: There is recent information that Mary and John Richardson did live in Westchester county, New York, and had three children, all girls. The three were Bethia, born 1654, and married to John Katcham; Mary, born1655, and married Joseph Hadley, and Elizabeth, born 1656, and married to Gabriel Leggett. As we know from the court records above, Mary was in trial in New Haven in Oct. 1854 and was pregnant at the time. Thus, it is possible, although not proved, that Mary's second child did live and was named Bathia. John Richardson died in 1679 and Martha remarried Capt. Thomas Williams. They had no children.

MOTOR BIKE KILLS FRED M. SLAWSON
Register of Deeds Victim of Fast Driving Prevailing at the Five Points.
Consciousness Not regained.
Victim Struck Unawares by Charles Stubbs' Machine and Death Resulted Three Hours Later.
In full view of scores of persons who were passing the Five Points about 6 o'clock last Thursday evening Fred M. Slawson, register of deeds, was struck by a motorcycle going ten or twelve miles an hour, and injured so badly that he died three hours later.
Mr. Slawson was attempting to cross Broadway from the building formerly occupied by the Brehm clothing department to the Kimbll jewelry store. There were two livery automobiles standing against the curb, and he passed between them. As he emerged in the street the motorcycle, carrying Stubbs and Arthur Martin, bore down on him. The cycle was running in the car track and Stubbs said he tried to pull it out, but that the rails held it straight ahead.
CRASHED INTO VICTIM
In an instant the crash came. Mr. Slawson was knocked several feet along the pavement. The cycle overturned. When friends reached Mr. Slawson he was found to be unconscious. An examination by a physician showed that the victim had sustained two fractures of the leg, one of the arm and one of the skull.
Stubs was thrown to the pavement and fainfully bruised and his riding companion somewhat hurt.
As soon as the extent of the injuries to Mr. Slawson was comprehended aid was summoned and he was removed to his home, 108 Broadway. Every possible thing was done to bring him back to consciousness, but Mr. Slawson died at 9 o'clock. Without question he never comprehended what had happened nor suffered any physical pain. His daughter, Mrs. E.R. Dickerson, and many personal friends were gathered at the home when the end came.
MOTORCYCLE DRIVER ARRESTED
Young Stubbs was taken to the county jail. A charge of assault without regard for human life was lodged against him. Relatives appeared and furnished bond about 8 o'clock, before the death of Mr. Slawson occurred. he was brought into court Friday morning and the case was adjourned a week, pending inquiry by the coroner. No increase in bail nor change in charge was made.
Stubbs said he was riding at a moderate speed and did not see Mr. Slawson until he emerged from between the two cars. the motorcycle was then within a few feet of the spot where the collision took place.
RULE FOR INSERT
Mr. Slawson was 64 years of age. he had been connected with the office of the register of deeds for nineteen years. Two years ago he was elected register. He resided here all his life, excepting for about ten years when he was a resident of Fond du Lac. He was well known throughout the county, and respected and admired by a host of friends here in the city.
Surviving are Mrs. Earl Dickerson, a daughter; Charles , a son, and Miss Augusta A. Slawson a sister who teaches in the Milwaukee schools.
FUNERAL ON SUNDAY
the funeral for Mr. Slawson was held on Sunday at the Masonic Temple. The services there followed the ritual of the Knights Templar and the service at the grave was according to the Blue Lodge ritual. W.W. Perry of Milwaukee, secretary of the Masonic Grand Lodge, delivered the funeral sermon. Hundreds were present and viewed the remains which were exposed at the Temple.
The bearers were C.A. Haertel, E. J. Evans, John Rodgers, George B. Harris., H.E. Blair and A.S. Putney, Sr.
CARRIED ACCIDENT INSURANCE
It was learned this week that Mr. Slawson had carried an accident insurance policy for $5,000 in one of the companies handled by Chauncey Fraser, and the estate will benefit to that extent within a few days. the Policy was taken out in 1913. Mr. Slawson was also a member of fraternal insurance order in this city.

On 2 Apr., 1771 being of Stamford he deeded Stamford lands to "my brother Joseph." Certain of these lands were bounded y "my brother David Ambler's lands." He deeded other Stamford lands on the same day and on 1 May 1771 John Ambler and his wife Sarah were received by the Cong. Ch. at Salem, Westchester Co., NY. On 14 Apr. 1773 and subsequent dates John Ambler of Cortlandt manor (Salem), Westchester Co., conveyed Stamford lands.|
Westchester land recs., contain a deed dated 5 Aug., 1773 from Cortlandt Skinner and other Van Cortlandt heirs to John Ambler of Cortlandt Manor conveying the west part of farm No. 4 in lot No. 10, eighty-eight and three quarters acres along with rough lot No. 4, "together with the houses, outhouses, barns, stables, orchards, gardens meadows, pastures, woods, underwoods etc., etc.," price L314. On 30 May 1774 James Lockwood conveyed to john Ambler (both of Cortlandt Manor) farm No. 2 in great lot 10, price L111. Ambler property lay in Lower Salem for on 3 Jan., 1785 John Ambler and wife Sarah of that town sold to Charles Weed "rights in the estate of our uncle Gideon Weed, late of Stamford." They removed to Fredericktown, Dutchess Co., soon after April 1790 and are credited to that own in census of 1790. They signed Articles of Faith of the West Philipi or Old Gilead Ch. (Carmel) 9 Ag., 1792. Foster's History of Gilead Church says taht John Ambler was elected deacon in June 1795--"John Ambler sustained the family name in the part he too in Gilead Church at the opening of this period. He was a frequent attendant of the associated Presbytery." (Foster errs in calling him a son of Abraham Ambler. Actually he was a great grandson.) John Ambler appears las in the land records when on 10 May 1794, being of Fredericktown he deeded Stanford lands to John Scofield. Probably he accompanied his oldest son John to Spencertown, Columbia Co., NY, before 1800. He and Sarah have a twin stone behind the ch. at Spencertown. he d. 13 oct., 1802 in his 70th yr. She d. 22 Oct., 1802 in her 67th yr. John Ambler served in the Rev. with the Associated Exempts, Westchester militia under Col. Joseph Benedict. Perhaps also in Cap. Seely's Co. of Col.

||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. ||MOORE, Deacon John (I70139)

Two days later his sons Matthew, Barnabas, Joseph and Benjamin quitclaimed to their sisters "Desire Fuller and Sarah Fuller Daughters of sd deceased of all their deceased mother's Apparrel." The 30 December 1691 letter of administration assigns custody of the estate of daughters Desire and Sarah fuller to be kept until further order. This implies that these daughters are not of age.

With Thomas Southworth, , his son-in-law, the testator left annuities for his four children, including Sir Matthew Lister, physician to King Charles I.|
Thomas Southworth had become a Protestant by 1584,for which reason his father, Sir John, a moderate Catholic, threatened to disinherit him.

||The Winthrops, Doggetts, and Eddys were known to each other in England, for John Winthrop had married for his second wife Thomasine Clopton of Groton; Thomas Doggett, a cousin of Amy, had married her sister Margery Clopton of Groton; and John eddy had married Amy Doggett of Groton. This is doubtless the reason why John and Samuel Eddy within two weeks of landing at Plymouth left for the Bay Colony. they wished to settle near their friends and acquaintances. At this time there was an agreement between the two colonies that a man must carry letters of dismissal from one colony before he could be received as an inhabitant by the other. John and Samuel did not carry those letters with them and so were obliged to return to Plymouth, with John Grant and Capt. Standish.|
Sometime previous to Feb. 26, 1631/32 John eddy procured the necessary letters of dismissal and was received into the Bay Colony. He joined the settlement at Watertown, which was rapidly growing to be the largest in New England. A letter which Gov. Bradford of Plymouth wrote to Gov Winthrop, regarding the dismissal of several men from the colony is found in the Chamberlain Collection at the Boston Public Library....

||The youngest (at least the last mentioned in the will of Humphrey) of the Howlands who have been heretofore referred to as arriving at Plymouth probably before 1625, was without doubt Henry. It is on record that he was a brother of Arthur, and they all doubtless held the same family relationship to each other.....|
Search has been made in vain for his name on records of departures from England and arrivals in this country. The first mention made of him in New England is that in the allotment of cattle to the different families in Plymouth in 1624, he appears as the owner of the "black cow." On the first page of Vol. 1 of the curt records of new Plymouth, is found in a list of freemen, under date of 1633, the name of "Henery Howland." On the 25th of March of the ame year he is taxed "s.9 for the publike vse,......rated in corne at vi s p bushell." His thrift is shown in the fact that on the 27th of March, 1634, he is on the tax list for 18s.
He appears in Duxbury among its earliest settlers, some of the first inhabitants of Plymouth locating themselves there across the harbor, on the north side of the bay. here he is referred to as living "by the bay side, near Love Brewster's" and the record reads that he was "one of the substantial landholders and freemen."
The old records of Plymouth colony say that "Att a Courte held ye 5 of Jan., An 1635." Henry Howland was chosen "cunstable for Duxberry.".....
In 1640 he purchases five acres of upland and one acre of marsh meadow in Duxbury, the price which he paid being "Twelve bushells of Indian Corne." For several years he was surveyor of highways in the town. In 1643 he was on a list of freemen of Duxbury, and of men able to bear arms. He served on the "Grand Inquest" (grand jury) in 1636, '38, '39, '40, '49, '51, '52, '53, '56.
He was evidently placed on the next grand jury, for his name appears in 1657, June 3d, on a list of tose who refused "to serve on the Grand Enquest". The apparent reason for this is that he had joined the Friends' sect, which was just beginning to spread in America, and the duties were such that he could not conscientiously perform them...
At the court of October, 1657, Henry "was summonsed to appear at the next March Court to answare for intertaining Quakers meetings in his house." he appeared at the court referred to, and was fined 10s....
Toward the latter part of his life he became a large possessor of real estate. In 1652 he was associated with others in a large tract of land in Dartmouth. On the 2d of April, 1659, together with twenty-six others, he bought of Wamsutta and Pattapanum what was then called Assonet and is now Freetown. They gave 20 coats, 2 rugs, 2 iron pots, 2 kettles and one little kettle, 8 pairs shoes, 6 pairs stockings, 1 dozen hats, 2 dozen hatchets, and 2 yards broadcloth. At the division, in 1660, of "yeffreeman's land att Taunton River," which was this purchase, he received for his share the sixth lot. This was afterwards inherited by his son Samuel. He was one of the grantees of Bridgewater, but probably never lived there. In 1664 he bought a large tract of land in Mettapoisett (Swanzey).

||There is a child, Ellen A Connel (not sure about the spelling) who is 1 and living with Daniel and Sarah in the 1860 Census. Daniel's name is Donald in this census. I put his death before 1870, because he is not listed with Sarah in the 1870 Census. ||ROSS, Daniel Brittion (I63956)
||There is a difference of opinion as to the name of the father for Elizabeth and John Deming. The book "The Descendants of Nathaniel Foote and Elizabeth Deming" by Ellwood Count Curtis, list Elizabeth's father's name as Richard. However, the book "Genealogy of the Descendants of John Deming of Wethersfield, Connecticut" lists John's father's name as John. Since the latter book gives reason for their conclusion, I am using the name of John.|
I have placed the "Sr" after his name to be able to distinguish him from his son.

||There is a marriage record for a Frances Helms, b. 1908 in Bellaire, Ohio to Clifton Melladew. The date is 23 Jan 1929 in Wellsburg, Brooke Co., West Virginia. (West Virginia Marriages, 1780-1970).|
However, Frances is living with her sister Julia P. Rabe in the 1930 census. She is listed as Frances Helms. Clifton Melladew is listed in the 1930 census for Columbus, Franklin Co., Ohio as having wife Sadie and sons Clifton Jr. (2), and Gerald (1). Have to wonder is one or both of the sons belong to Frances. The marriage ended sometime between Jan. 1929 and the time of the 1930 census.

||There is no mention of the wife of Thomas Nash in the records of New Haven, except in the seating of the Meeting House and then her Christian name is not given. But in Berry's County Genealogies and Pedigrees of Hertfordshire, there is an account of the Baker Family, which makes it highly probable that her name was MARGERY and that she was the daughter of NICHOLAS BAKER of Hertfordshire, England. The last time that she is mentioned i the records is in the seating of Feb. 11, 1655, "In ye short seate Good w: Nash ye elder and Rogger Allins wife". (her daughter.) Mrs. Schenck in her History of Fairfield, says she died within two years of her husband.|
