About Benjamin Newcomb

From B.M. Newcomb's 1923 book Biography Note: Mr. Newcomb "owned covenant" at Lebanon in the oldest church, 15 Oct. 1732. He had resided in Lebanon since the autumn of 1713, when he removed with his father's family, and there resided until 1732, when he went to Willington, Conn. After four years he returned to Lebanon. In 1733 Benjamin Newcomb with his father, Simon of Lebanon, bought land and rights amounting to 171 acres and 13 1/2 acres commons in Willington. Subsequently Mr. Newcomb established his home in Kent, Conn., where he wife was received to church 6 Jun 1742, and he, 26 Feb. 1749. The same year he bought 40 acres in Sharon for £700 "old tenor". Oct 1751 Benjamin Newcomb "of Cornwall Conn." is on petition. About 1760, soon after the expulsion of the Acadians from Nova Scotia, he removed with his family, except three daughters, to the town of Cornwallis, Kings Co., and become one of the original proprietors in 1761, receiving a half-acre house-lot in the compact part of town for residence, and several large lots in the vicinity as his share. Mr. Newcomb and his wife aided in the organization of the first church in Cornwallis. Tradition says that Mrs. Newcomb was of Scotch descent. Some time after 1775 he removed with his son, Benjamin, to Wateroborough, New Brunswick, later Canning, where they died. In a letter from Benjamin to his sister Submit, dated 16 Oct. 1818, the statement is made: "Since I have seen you I have buried our honored father and mother, and two near and dear wives, two sons and one daughter."
