    • The will of Charles Weed late of Stamford, dated 28 Aug. 1759, pro. 29 Sept., 1759, mentions among his children "Sarah wife of John Ambler Jr., of Stamford." Sarah Ambler was admitted to 1st Ch. Stamford, 19 July 1761. he was admitted 3 Nov., 1765. they are marked "dismissed by letter, removed." He was a grantee of Chiswick, N.H. 31 Jan., 1764 but never removed. On 2 Apr., 1771 being of Stamford he deeded Stamford lands to "my brother Joseph." Certain of these lands were bounded y "my brother David Ambler's lands." He deeded other Stamford lands on the same day and on 1 May 1771 John Ambler and his wife Sarah were received by the Cong. Ch. at Salem, Westchester Co., NY. On 14 Apr. 1773 and subsequent dates John Ambler of Cortlandt manor (Salem), Westchester Co., conveyed Stamford lands.

      Westchester land recs., contain a deed dated 5 Aug., 1773 from Cortlandt Skinner and other Van Cortlandt heirs to John Ambler of Cortlandt Manor conveying the west part of farm No. 4 in lot No. 10, eighty-eight and three quarters acres along with rough lot No. 4, "together with the houses, outhouses, barns, stables, orchards, gardens meadows, pastures, woods, underwoods etc., etc.," price L314. On 30 May 1774 James Lockwood conveyed to john Ambler (both of Cortlandt Manor) farm No. 2 in great lot 10, price L111. Ambler property lay in Lower Salem for on 3 Jan., 1785 John Ambler and wife Sarah of that town sold to Charles Weed "rights in the estate of our uncle Gideon Weed, late of Stamford." They removed to Fredericktown, Dutchess Co., soon after April 1790 and are credited to that own in census of 1790. They signed Articles of Faith of the West Philipi or Old Gilead Ch. (Carmel) 9 Ag., 1792. Foster's History of Gilead Church says taht John Ambler was elected deacon in June 1795--"John Ambler sustained the family name in the part he too in Gilead Church at the opening of this period. He was a frequent attendant of the associated Presbytery." (Foster errs in calling him a son of Abraham Ambler. Actually he was a great grandson.) John Ambler appears las in the land records when on 10 May 1794, being of Fredericktown he deeded Stanford lands to John Scofield. Probably he accompanied his oldest son John to Spencertown, Columbia Co., NY, before 1800. He and Sarah have a twin stone behind the ch. at Spencertown. he d. 13 oct., 1802 in his 70th yr. She d. 22 Oct., 1802 in her 67th yr. John Ambler served in the Rev. with the Associated Exempts, Westchester militia under Col. Joseph Benedict. Perhaps also in Cap. Seely's Co. of Col. Drake's 3d Westchester milita. [1]
