  • HURD FAMILY.
  • A little care is necessary to avoid confusion here. John Hurd, among the first settlers of Meriden, came so early to Stratford, that he represented the town in 1649. He had either a brother or a son Adam, probably his brother, because both Adam's, son John and John's son John, were m. in Dec. 1662. These two Johns are sometimes styled "cousins," on the record, which would make Adam a brother of the elder John. But again, Adam's son John is styled nephew of the other John, which implies brotherhood of their fathers, although the two terms of kinship are carelessly exchanged.
  • On Dec. 10 1662, John Hurd, Jr., (so called) son of Adam, m. Ann, widow of Joshua Judson, and he had Sarah, Dec. 1664; Joseph, Feb. ? 1666; Benjamin, Feb. 1667; Ebenezer, Nov. 1668. Ruth, Feb. 1670; John, Aug. 1673. This John the son of Adam is he who went to Woodbury.
  • The other John son of John, m. Dec. 15, 1662, Sarah, dau. of John Thompson, and from 1664, to 1679, had eight children. John, Sarah, Hannah, Isaac, Jacob, Mary, Esther, Abigail, but of these I suppose you have no need.
