About Jared Huxley

Jared- [7] (Thomas') born January 21, 1679, at Suffield, then in Hampshire county, Massachusetts, but now in Hartford county. Conn., and died there about — i754- I" order to understand the above statement relating to the locality, it must be remembered that at the original settlement of Suf- field by Major Pinchon and his associates whose grant was from the General Court at Boston, it was a part of Hampshire countv. in the Province or Colonv of Massachusetts Bav and


remained under the political jurisdiction of Massachusetts till 1749, when, upon a re-adjustment of the colony line between Massachusetts and Connecticut, the town of Suffield fell upon the south side of the line and became a part of Hartford county, Connecticut, and subject to its political jurisdiction, where it still remains and will be spoken of in this work as in Connecticut after 1749. In the History of Suffield at page 95 it is said "The history of the negotiations for the settlement of the colony line and the quarrels between the towns for many years often resulting in blows, would fill a volume." Jared married ist Hannah Smith, November 5. 1706. She died July 5, 1708; one child [18] was born. 2nd married Mary Norton, May 5, 1709. She was the eldest daughter of Capt. George Norton (son of George Norton, a carpenter, who came from London, England, in April, 1629, and settled at Salem, Mass.) and his second wife, widow Mary Gillet, whom he married June 20, 1683. Mary was born at Suffield in July, 1684, and Capt. George Norton died November 15, 1696. He was a freeman in 1681, Captain of Militia. Inn Keeper, Se- lectman in 1685 and 1693 ^-nd was also the first Representative to the General Court at Boston for the town of Suffield in 1693. Jared was a land owner and a farmer and at times from 1 7 13 to 1723 held the minor offices of constable and surveyor of highways, and in 1720 he was a Tythingman. This office was at that time deemed \'ery important and responsible. The incumbent of this office was much reverenced by the law abid- ing and much feared by the transgressor. The duties were "To inspect all licensed houses of entertainment and to inform of all disorders or misdemeanors committed in them, to present and inform of all idle and disorderly persons, profane swear- ers, or cursers. Sabbath breakers and the like offenders." The insignia of office was "A black staff two feet long tipped at one end with brass about three inches as a badge of office to be pro- vided by the Selectmen of the town."
