9019 Things were not easy for Prudence the first years after arriving at the log cabin. She was a very courageous pioneer woman. The Indians really pestered her and there were many of them living near the cabin. Every time taht she baked bread, the Pottowatomies whose sense of smell was keen, would come in flocks to get a handout as soon as the bread was taken out of the oven. They also liked cooked meat of chickens and enjoyed running down the biggest and the fattest of the flock. Many wore the Indian artifacts the Padelford family collected in those early days and throughout the years. POUND, Prudence (I45210)

9022 This well known resident of Shrub Oak came to Peekskill on Thursday and transacted considerable business. Early in the afternoon he started to return home, riding on a load of lumber. When near the creek on Main Street, west of the Beecher house, he was observed to pitch forward and fall from the wagon to the hard ground. Parties who saw him fall immediately went to his assistance, and he was removed to the store nearby, and Dr. P. H. Mason called as quickly as possible, but he could only announce that the man was dead, that he had been attacked with apoplexy and was unconscious when he fell from the wagon. There was a flesh wound on the side of the face where it had struck the ground, but no fracture of the skull nor dislocation of the neck, although the first rumors were that the unfortunate gentleman had been thrown from his wagon and his neck broken. Coroner Hyatt was notified and held an inquest in the early evening, a verdict of death from apoplexy being rendered.

Mr. Slawson was about 65 years of age, and leaves a family of two sons and one daughter. His wife died a year or two ago. He has resided at Shrub Oak some eight or ten years, pursuing the occupation of a farmer. For many years he was the proprietor of the Slawson house at Lake Mahopac, Putnam county, in the days when that place was a famous boarding resort. For forty-five years he was a consistent church member, and was highly respected in the community in which he lived.

9023 Thomas and Clarissa settled in the Town of Chazy, NY and had at least 14 children.[Slosson 11-20-00 Greene.FTW]

Thomas's brothers, David and William settled in Chazy, NY, afer 1804, but only
William's descendents seem to have remained in the area. William Slosson was
one of the first settlers going north on the old state road in 1807. The
Slosson cemetery, in use in 1826, is on the east side of old state road - 75
stones.

Excerpt from Chazy Historian: "Thomas is likely the first to have settled here, no date has been ascertained but the genealogy states that all his fifteen children were born in Chazy, the dates of the first seven not given, the eight born in 1810. He was the fifth child of Eleazer born in Addison, VT. 1772 and married Clarissa Belden of Troy NY where she died in 1865 and he died in Aurora, Ill. in 1870. At least three of his children died young, nine went to Aurora, Ill. to live, Julius settled in Mooers and Daniel, several years after his marriage went to Aurora."

9026 Thomas and Jonathan Starr married sisters, Mary and Elizabeth Morgan, daughters of Capt. James Morgan. Samuel, the oldest son of Jonathan, removed to Norwich, and is the founder of the Norwich family of Starrs. Jonathan, the second son, was the ancestor of the present Jonathan Starr, Esq., of New London, and of the late Capt. Jared Starr. Richard, another brother of this family, removed to Hinsdale, Mass., and was one of the fathers of that new settlement, and a founder of its infant church.

The descendants of Jonathan Starr have been remarkable for longevity,?eight of his children lived to be eighty, and most of them over eighty-five years of age. One of his daughters, Mrs. Turner, was one hundred years and seven months old. In the family of his son Jonathan, the father, mother, and four children averaged ninety years of age.

STARR, Capt. Jonathan (I71303)
 
9027 Thomas Avery may have lived for a short time at Stonington, but most of his life was spent at New London, first on the east side of the river in what is now Groton, and later in the North Parish, now called Montville. May 12, 1681, he was made a freeman of New London; May, 1693, he was commissioned captain of the train band on the east side of the river, New London; in 1694, he was deputy to the general court.....

Thomas Avery received his share of his grandfather's estate by deed from his father, James Avery, April 1, 1685, and three weeks later sold it to his brother, Samuel. He also owned other land in New London. He was in the King Philip war of 1675, and, for his services, had lot No. 10 of arable land and lot No. 154 of cedar swamp allotted to him in Voluntown. He was in the ill-fated Fitz-John Winthrop expedition of 1690 which was to advance from Albany by way of Lake Champlain to Montreal. In his diary, Winthrop gives an account of the difficulties that they encountered. under the date of Aug. 4, 1690, is found the following:

"I consulted with the officers & twas concluded to march forwards, & then devided our provition, wch was about 35 cakes of bread for each souldr, besides port, which was scarce eateavle. At this post (Saratoge) I left Liut Tho. Avery with some souldrs to gaurd our porvition to us wch was coming vp the river" (The Winthrop Papers, Massachusetts Hist. Col., Fifth Series, 8:314)"

For an account of this expedition, see Avery's HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES AND ITS PEOPLE, vol. 3, pages 263, 264.

The latter part of his life he lived near the Mohegan India reservation. On the 22d of June, 1720, Capt. Thomas Avery and his brother Capt. James Avery were appointed interpreters for the Mohegans in the suit then pending before the governor and council. In 1721, Caezer, the sachem of the Mohegans, conveyed to Thomas Avery 160 acres of land in consideration of the kindness shown them by Captain Avery and his family. Upon this land Thomas Avery lived; the house he built there is still standing. About ten years before his death, in consideration of love and good will and on account of the infirmities of age, he conveyed this land to his son, Abraham.

The last entry of accessions to the church of New London during Mr. Bradstreet's ministry reads: "Sept. 10, 1682, Thomas Avery and wife were added to the Church." They were among the organizers of the church of the North Parish, afterward called Montville. Their names appear first on the list of original covenanters. Before the North Parish could enjoy religious services, a long-standing quarrel had to be settled. October, 1721, the parish petitioned the general court for liberty to form a separate church. The first name on the petition was that of Thomas Avery, the third was that of Abraham Avery. (Connecticut Ecclesiastical Archives, 2:251). Finally, Jan. 17, 1721, it was agreed that the meeting-house should stand on Raymond Hill, land being given for the purpose. In his church record, Mr. James Hillhouse, the first minister, says:

"I was installed October the 3d day, 1722.
Mr. Adams preached from Acts 16:9. There were seven that belonged to the Church at my installment- Capt. Avery, Capt. Denison, Mr. Nathl Otis, Mr. Allen, Mr. Vibber, Charles Campbell and one Deacon."

 
AVERY, Thomas (I03090)
 
9028 Thomas Avery was called yeoman of Saybrook on a deed dated 11 September 1703. He was involved in a controversy with Thomas Lord over land in Saybrook, which was settled 8 December 1704. He and his brother, Samuel Avery, sold land in "Pochange," Oyster River tract to Samuel Chapman on 5 June 1706, and 24 October 1706, he called himself of New London, gentleman, when he amended the prior deed to Chapman. AVERY, Thomas (I71278)

9033 Thomas came in the "Fortune" that arrived at Cape Cod November 9, 1621.

Excerpt from "Dawes-Gates, Ancestral Lines":
His residence was first at Plymouth, but before the spring of 1632 he had followed his father-in-law, William Brewster, to Duxbury, where Patience Brewster, the wife of Thomas Prence, died in 1634 and where the residences of these two families continued until 1644, at which time the beloved Elder William died and Thomas Prence removed with his family to Nauset on the Cape. In this change he was accompanied by six other families, including those of John Doane, Josiah Cooke, and Edward Bangs, a total of forty-nine souls. there he was instrumental in forming the fourth church in the infant colony and in 1651 the settlement was renamed Eastham. While Thomas was still resident in Duxbury, and aged on about thirty-four, he was elected governor in 1634, serving then for the term of one year. In 1638 he was again the recipient of the same honor, but five years previously a law had been passed requiring the governor to reside in Plymouth, so he declined the office. On the insistence of the court he agreed to accept the position if the residence clause were waived. That request was granted, and he served during the year 1638. For more than forty years after 1632 he continuously served as an assistant or magistrate, except while holding the chief office of governor.
While resident in Eastham, and immediately following the death of Governor Bradford, Thomas Prence was unanimously chosen to succeed him, and thereafter for sixteen consecutive years, or until his own death in 1673, he held the office of governor. On his election in 1657 the court again granted him the special concession of waiver of residence, permitting him to continue to live at Eastham, where he had a farm of at least two hundred acres of the richest land in the vicinity. 
PRENCE, Gov. Thomas (I45394)
 
9034 Thomas came to New England at the age of 21, and settled in the Massachusetts Bay. He afterwards removed to Southhold, Long Island; thence to Huntington, and thence to Jamaica, from whence he removed to Norwalk in 1665. BENEDICT, Thomas (I05538)
 
9035 Thomas Chaffe, the immigrant ancestor of nearly all who today bear this surname under its varied forms of orthography, from Chafe to Chaffee, now residing in the United States and parts of Canada, came to New England, where in 1635 he owned land and was living in Hingham, Mass. The place and date of his birth, his parentage, the time and place of his arrival and the name of the ship which bore him from the Old World to the New, are at present unknown.

The first mention of him in the records is found in the Town Clerk's office in Hingham, under the date 1635:

"Given unto John Tucker by the town of Hingham for a planting lot six acres of land lying upon the Worlds End Hill, bounded with the land of Thomas Chaffe and the land of John Prince, Southward and with the land of Ralph Woodward, Northward, butting upon the Sea Eastward and Westward."

This is not only the earliest mention of Thomas Chaffe, but also the name of Chaffe. How long Thomas Chafe had owned this land when John Tucker received his land, we do not know. Hingham was one of the oldest towns in the Massachusetts Bay Colony. There were settlers there as early as 1633, at which time it bore the name of "Bare Cove." The General Court, on September 2, 1635, changed the name to Hingham in deference to requests, no doubt made by those early settlers, several of whom came from Hingham in the County of Norfolk, England. Whether Thomas Chaffe was one of the earliest settlers of Hingham, we do not know; the list of those who in 1635 owned land there does not give his name, but the above extract from the records proves conclusively that at that time he was a property owner, though the entry of his grant was not made until 1637, when we find, under the heading "The severall parsells of land and meadow legally given unto Thomas Chaffe by the towne of Hingham," the following:
"Given unto Thomas Chaffe by the Towne for a planting lott seven acres of land upon the worlds end hill bounded with the sea eastward and southward and with the land of John Prince westward and with the land of John Tucker northward."

Under the same date we find another entry:
"Given unto Thomas Chaffe all the salt marsh on the south side of straitts ond for two acres and he is to have all the sd parsells of land to him and his heirs for ever be they more or less as they were measured."

"July 17th 1637. . . Given unto Thomas Chaffe by the towne for a house lott two acres of land Butting upon Batchellor street eastward bounded with the land of William Ludkin southward."

The small amount of land granted to Thomas Chafe for his house or home lot, proves that at this time he was unmarried, as it was the custom of those days to grant small parcels of land to bachelors, as being sufficient for their needs. Bachelor Street is now known as Main Street, and the original Chaffe home lot is about opposite the old meeting-house....

The name of his wife and the date and place of his marriage are unknown. He was probably married in Hull, as the copious notes and manuscripts left by the Reverend Peter Hobart, pastor of the church at Hingham from September, 135, until the date of his death in1678, make no mention in any way of Thomas Chaffe, his wife or children. The town are records of Hull prior to 1657 have been lost; if extant they would doubtless give us the desired information. It is probable that the wife's Christian name was Dorothy, as her sons both had daughters by that name, which was not a name found in the families of their wives; in that day it was the custom to name children for their grandparents, the cases where this was not done being very exceptional.....

Soon after July 25, 1680, he made his will which was exhibited "Sixt of March Anno Domini 1683.

Just what the date of Thomas Chaffe's death was we do not know, but probably not long before the filing of his will. He was doubtless buried in the ancient Chaffe Burying Ground on his own farm.......

CLARKE, Thomas (I11805)
 
9037 Thomas Clarke, who was buried on the hill, in Plymouth, came over in the Anne, in 1623 being then 23 years old.

He was probably a seafaring man, as well as carpenter. It is recorded that in 1635, he lost a boat worth L15 in a great storm in Eel river.

He had for his garden plot, in 1623 one acre on the south side of the brook. In 1637, he was the first to volunteer to go against the Piquot Indians. In this roll are Mr. Stephen Hopkins and his two sons, Caleb and Giles. At this date he dwelt at Eel river, and was styled "yeoman."

In 1642, he was surveyor of Plymouth: in 1651, one of the Plymouth committee. He appears to have been a very active, trading speculating man. In 1629, he bought an acre of land on the south side of the town for 30 pounds of tobacco and the next day sold it to Governor Bradford. He purchased a lot of land at Eel river in 1630, for L10.

9049 Thomas Flegg died Feb 6, 1697/8; will proved Feb. 16 of same, does not mention all of his children.

He came to New England when only 21 years old with Richard Carver, in whose employ he was. They embarked at Scratby, Norfolk, 1637. Although of an ancient and respectable family of Norfolk, he was registered as servant of Carver's. that word being used at the time to denote servitude of any kind. Thus Sir Ferdinando Gorges speaks of Gov. Vines as "my servant"; Pepys, the diarist is registered as the servant of kinsman, Lord Sandwich, and the records of the time abound in such instances. It is altogether probable that the young man had entered into an arrangement very common at the time, to work for Carver for a certain period in payment for his passage. (Stiles' Ancient Windsor, I, p. 40.) That there was nothing debasing about his servitude is proved by the part he subsequently took in the affairs of the new settlement, for at this time in New England, social distinctions were most rigidly observed. Although not among the first proprietors of Watertown, his name appears on the records as early as 1641, as owner of a "homestall" of six acres and a lot of twenty acres. Between 1671 and 1687, he was Selectman eight terms, 1671-74-75-76-78-81-85 and 87. He lost his eye by a gunshot accident previous to 1659. He was released from training April 165(?) by paying the company 5 shillings per annum and was fully released therefrom by the court April 5, 1681, when his eldest son was 40 years old.
