About James York, Jr.

BROWN GENEALOGY, Vol II, by Cyrus Henry Brown, pp. 25 & 26.

    Wheeler's "History of Stonington" says of the York family, p. 695:
   "James York, Jr., b. June 14, 1648. He doubtless came to Stonington, Conn., with his father, when under age, for his name is mentioned in the town records several times before the date 1672, when Savage says, 'He sold his estate in Boston, Mass., where he was engaged in business, and came to Stonington,' for on the Stonington town records, under date of Jan. 15, 1667, '100 acres of land layed out to James York, Jr.' and he was also one of the men who received land grants for service in Indian Wars. He was made a freeman in Conn. in 1673, and died Oct. 26, 1676, and his widow m. for her second husband, Mar. 12, 1670. Henry Elliot. James York, Jr., m., Stonington, Conn., Jan. 19, 1669, Deborah Bell, dau. of Thomas and Anna Bell. Through the wife of James York, Jr. Deborah Bell, we get the name Bell that so frequehntly occurs in the York lineage.
