  • Name Joseph AYER  [1, 2, 3, 4, 5
    • He took the oath of allegiance and fidelity in Haverhill 28 Nov. 1677, with his father and brothers. Lived there until he removed to Ipswich, and thence about 1703 to West Farms (Franklin), Conn. Miss Caulkins says that John and Joseph Ayer settled at Preston and North Stonington as farmers. Joseph's farm was within the bounds of "Norwich East Society" (part of Preston) where he was admitted an inhabitant in 1704.....

      Joseph Ayer brought his two sons with him; no doubt the other children came soon after, for they married in this neighborhood. He bought a large tract of land from Uncas (a Mohecan chief) and built the Ayer homestead in a narrow gap at the foot of Ayer's mountain, known as Ayer's Gap, where his father had settled before him. His will, dated Norwich, 6 Sep., 1736, proved in 1747, mentions his four living children. [1]
