About Caleb Pendleton, Jr.

  1. Note: Caleb Pendleton, Jr. was baptized 6 June, 1697, at Stonington, Conn. (First Ch. Rec.), and died in 1740, at Colchester, Conn. He was living at Westerly, RI, as late as the 9th of Jan. 1736/7, when he witnessed the will of James Babcock of that town. On the 11th of March following, he bought from William and Hannah Douglas, and John and Elizabeth Douglass, a hundred acre farm in Colchester, Conn., for which he paid 800 pounds (Colchester Land Records, v,1). He removed to Colchester shortly afterwards, and the records of that town show he was admitted a freeman there, 1 April, 1740. His death occured not long afterwards, as his will, dated 15 May 1740, was probated 10 June 1740. Caleb, Jr., was evidently in prosperous circumstances for those days, as the inventory of his estate amounted to over 1600 pounds; it included among other items; farm, 1000 pounds; three Indian boy servants, all at 55 pounds; gun and sword, and notes due from Ichabod Randall, Benoni Smith, James Tilkey, Daniel Tennant and Peter Bulkeley. The Indian boy servants of Caleb's may have been the progenitors of the Indians bearing the name of Pendleton who have turned up in later records. Caleb Pendleton, Jr., married at Westerly, RI, 25 October 1716, Mary Randall, daughter of John and Abigail Randall; she was born at Stonington, 16 December 1798. Less that a year after Caleb's death, she married at Bozrah, Conn., 26 Febrary, 1744, Stephen Stark (Fifth Book, 'Early Conn. Marriages.') On the 5th of May, 1741, William Treadway of Colchester, attorney to Stephen Stark, 'In right of his wife, Mary Stark, who was the widow of Caleb Pendleton of Colchester, dec., ' moved the Probate Court at Hartford that her thirds or dowry of the real estate of the said deceased be set out to her (Hartford Probate Records, xiii, 88). Caleb Pendleton's first four children were born at Westerly, RI, and are recorded there on p. 112, Vo. I of Town Meetings, etc. The two youngest are named in Caleb's will and perhaps were born at Colchester, Conn.
