  • Name Jonathan WATERBURY  [1, 2
    • "Connecticut Ancestry": Jonathan Waterbury was born probably at Stamford about 1651, and died there on 4 or 14 January 1702/03.

      Although his wife is often called "Youne" or "Euni" in the surviving records, her name was Eunice (?) as given in at least one land record, and she also named a daughter Eunice. Most researchers believe that she was Eunice Buxton, daughter of Clement Buxton and his wife, also named Eunice (?). Youne Waterbury married richard Higginbotham at Stamford on 11 December 1707, as his second wife and she died there on 24 May 1710.

      the widow "Unice" Waterbury (her X mark) made an agreement with her son Jonathan Waterbury on 26 July 1707, in which she promised to "build and completely finish for her sd son a dwelling hous at Noroton so called fourty foots in length & twenty foots in breadth & ten foots between the Joints...," in return for his assignment to her of certain rights to his father's estate.

      After their father's death, two of the sons in this family, Jonathan Waterbury and Joseph Waterbury, witnessed a deed of 9 january 1712/13 in which Clement Buxton Sr. sold land west of the Mill River to joseph Smith. Since the designation "senior" was used this was probably the Clement Buxton who lived from 1647 to 1724, probably their mother's brother.

      Many of the children of this family joined as grantors in a deed to Nathan Selleck on 6 January 1724, in which they conveyed a 1 1/2 acre lot in the "Renkon Hooge" (Runkinheage) division that had been their father's Jonathan Waterbury deceased. the grantors were: Jonathan Waterbury, John Newman and Abigail his wife of Stamford, and Benjamin Mead, Moses Ferris and Eunice his wife of Greenwich.
