About Capt. Joseph Saxton

Joseph lived west of Anguilla Brook, Stonington, where he kept an ordiinary, “which was considered by travelers better than any other tavern for miles along the road.” He is said to have engaged in the West Indies trade, “by which he was very wealthy”

His will dated July 8 1715, was admitted to probate in New London, Conn. His widow withheld the will for a time, in a controversy. She objected because whe was given only her dower, on-third of the estate. The other two-thirds went to her grandsons, Saxton Palmer and Saxton Bailey.

[McIntire Ancestry 1950 p 308]

Ancestor with Hannah Denison of actress Lee Remick (Mrs Lea Ann Remick Colleran Gowans); [Roberts Notable Kin 1:23]
