About Jared Ingersoll, I

The son of Jonathan & Sarah (Newton) Ingersoll, he married (1) Hannah Whiting, daughter of Col. Joseph & Hannah (Trowbridge) Whiting on August 1, 1743 in New Haven, and (2) Hannah (Miles) Alling, daughter of Capt. Samuel & Sarah (Woodward) Miles and widow of Enos Alling about 1779/80. There were no children born to this union.

Jared Ingersoll, Sr. graduated from Yale College in 1742 and was chosen as Stamp Master General for the New England Colonies under George III. At this time, several demonstrations against the Stamp Act were taking place across the Colony. Mr. Ingersoll had been assured of the governor's protection and tried to persuade the colonist to persevere.

A group of demonstrators surrounded his house and demanded that he resign. He agreed to offer his resignation, but this didn't satisfy some of them. In order to prevent his home from being attacked, he rode on horseback to place himself under the protection of the legislature at Hartford. Before reaching Wethersfield, he met about 500 men on horseback and rode with them to Wethersfield where they compelled him to resign again. He finally made a written resignation and he was escorted to Hartford where he read the paper to the assembly. In about 1770 he was appointed an admiralty judge in the middle district. He resided in Philadelphia for a time but returned to New Haven.

The known children of of Jared Sr. & Hannah (Whiting) Ingersoll: James Ingersoll (died in infancy) Jared Ingersoll Jonathan Ingersoll (died in childhood) Hannah Ingersoll

Note: In keeping with colonial naming practices, the child who did not live past infancy was ALSO named Jared (as well as the Jared that survived to become a PA-based "founding father).
