About Ezekiel Sanford, I

Ezechiell SANFORD (Thomas-2, Richard-1) was born in Feb 1586 in Much Haddam. He was christened at the church there on 20 Feb 1586. He died after 1635 at the age of 49 probably in Margaretting. Essex. Ezekiel Sanford was baptized at Much Hadham on 20 Feb 1586-86 as the eldest son of Thomas and Mary Sanford. He married Rose Warner in Hatfield, and they apparently lived there with her parents at least until after the birth of their first sons, Thomas and John. The town, modernly called Hatfield Broad Oak, is about six miles southeast of Much Hadham, over the county line into the shire of Essex. The records of baptisms, marriages and burials in this parish have been lost, prior to 1662, depriving all of the exact date of his marriage and the baptisms of his two eldest sons, Thomas and John, born between 1607 and 1612. It is unknown what his trade or occupation was. (Source: Thomas Sanford Genealogy; c., 1911, pp. 38-39)

    He probably saw no future for himself in Hatfield.  His father Thomas bequeathed to him three plots of three acres in Stanstead Mountfichet, which had been Ezekiel's grandfather's (Richard's).  So he made the most of it by settling on it. (Sanf.p.43)
    In or just before 1635, he moved to Margaretting, just southwest of Chelmsford, about fifteen miles from Stansted. (Sanf. p. 1399)

Ezechiell SANFORD and Rose WARNER were married in 1607 in Hatfield, Broad Oak, Hertfordshire, England. Rose WARNER, daughter of John WARNER and Mary ___, was born in 1588 in Hatfield. She died in 1707 at the age of 119 in Great Waltham, , Essex,. [This is obviously in error. I am looking for some better information as to when Rose Warner Sanford died. A reasonable guess, though, is that Ezekiel removed to Margaretting after his wife died, so she probably died sometime before 1635.] Ezechiell SANFORD and Rose WARNER had the following children (five of whom migrated to New England): +13i.Thomas SANFORD, our ancestor, who settled in Milford CT. +14ii.John SANFORD. +15iii.Ezekiel SANFORD. +16iv.Robert SANFORD, who settled in Hartford CT +17v.Andrew SANFORD, who settled in Hartford, then in Milford.

 19vii.Mary SANFORD was born on 13 Feb 1622 in Stanstead.
 20viii.Jonathan SANFORD was born on 18 Jan 1623 in Stanstead.
