    Notes 
    • Ancestry.com: History of New London, CT - William Hough, died August 10th, 1683.
      The family of Samuel Hough, oldest son of William, is registered at Saybrook, and in connection with the record it is stated that William Hough, was a son of Edward Hough, of West Chester in Cheshire, England. It has not been ascertained that this Edward Hough emigrated to America, but a widow Ann Hough that died in Gloucester, Mass., in 1672, aged eighty-five years, was perhaps his relict, and the mother of William Hough.
      William Hough married Sarah, daughter of Hugh Calkin, October 28th, 1635.

      Children: Hannah b. July 31, 1646; Abiah b. Sept. 15, 1648; Sarah b. Mar. 23,1651; Samuel b. Mar. 9, 1652/3; John b. Oct. 17, 1655; William b. Oct. 13, 1657; Jonathan b. Feb. 7, 1659/60; Deborah b. Oct. 21, 1662; Abigail b. Mar 5, 1665/6; Anna b Aug. 29, 1667.
      Hannah Hough married John Borden of Lyme; Abiah married the second William Douglas; Sarah married David Carpenter.
      The marriage of William Hough and the births of three children, are recorded at Gloucester; the remainder in New London, but it is mentioned that Samuel was born in Saybrook. the father being a house builder might have been temporarily employed in that place.
      The last four children of William Hough are not afterward found at New London; it is probable that they were scattered in other towns. Samuel the oldest son settled in Saybrook. Capt. John Hough, the second son, was a noted man of his time, powerful in frame and energetic in character. His wife was Sarah Post, of Norwich, and Capt. Hough was at one tie a resident in that place. His death was caused by a fall fro the scaffolding of a house which he was building in New London, August 26th, 1715. No external injury could be discovered, but he lived only an hour. Such an event was sufficient at that tie to move the whole town.
      William Hough, Jun., married Ann, daughter of Samuel Lothrop, of Norwich. He died April 22d, 1705. His relict, Widow Ann Hough, died in Norwich Nov. 19th, 1745.
