About Deacon Anthony Judd

Anthony Judd married Susanna Woodford on June 26, 1707 at Farmington, Hartford County, Connecticut Colony, (*present USA).

Deacon Anthony Judd was a large farmer and lived in the north part of Farmington. He was a man of influence and represented the town of Farmington many times between May 1717 and May 1741. He was the fourth member at the founding of the Church at Great Swamp; one of "seven pillars" and first Deacon, being chosen March 10, 1712-13.

A curious relationship existed between him and his children, for he married as his second wife, June 26, 1707, Mary, daughter Sergeant Samuel Snyder, while his son, Phinehas Judd, married her sister; his daughter, Susannah Judd, married her brother. So he became a brother-in-law to two of his children. In his will, Deacon Anthony Judd names his wife Mary, his two daughters, viz: Lydia, wife of John Cole and Susannah relict of Samuel Seymour, deceased, and his three sons, Amos, Phinehas and John.
