  • Name David DEMING  [1, 2
    • "Deming Genealogy": Rev. David Deming was educated at harvard College, from which institution he graduated in 1700. Soon after his marriage he bought land in Middletown, Conn., and there his son David was born. It does not appear that he took charge of the church in Middletown, although it is said that he preached there. It is probable that he moved back to the vicinity of Boston, after a few years, and may have been the pastor of the church at Needham, for at a meeting of the inhabitants of that town 29 Oct. 1712, it was voted "yt ye Town should give Robert Fuller 12 pence a week for his House Rent a year and Roome in his Barn for to lay hay for to keep the rev. Mr. Deming's Cattell, and that Robart Fuller should provide a convenient studdy for Mr. Deming in casse that Robart Fuller should want his littell roome in ye spring of ye year." He was ordained minister of the church of Medway, Mass., 17 Nov 1715, but resigned his charge 24 Sep 1722. It was here that his son Jonathan was born, of whom nothing further has been found except that in 1725 he is mentioned in his grandfather's will. After leaving Medway Mr. Deming settled in Lyme, Conn. He is said to have been a tall handsome man, and his wife, who was a few years his senior, was quite small but very much of a lady. [1]
