About Robert Rose, Jr.

Robert2 Rose (Robert1), b. ca 1619, was aged 15 when he came with his parents on the Francis in 1634. He d. sometime between 1 Nov. 1679 (deed) and 9 Mar. 1682/83 (inventory), in Stratford, Fairfield Co., Conn., m. (before 7 Oct. 1651), Rebecca --- . She testified that date in court held at New Haven (Anc. Town Rec., vol. 1, p. 89):     His widow Rebecca m. 2nd, 1685, Henry Allyn of Stratford who died by 8 Nov. 1690.

Robert Rose served in the Pequot war in which several hundred Indians were killed. After various hostilities and the murder of a number of New Englanders including the pioneer John Oldham, an expedition under Governor John Endicott was dispatched to avenge the massacres and to demand submission from the Pequots. This succeeded only in injuring a few innocent natives. "The crowning act of audacity which brought matters at once to a crisis was perpetrated in the early spring of 1636, when a party of Pequots, about one hundred in number, found their way to the infant settlement at Wethersfield, where they killed nine men and carried away captive two girls . . . it was now apparent that the Pequots had entered upon a course of hostilities which would not stop until their power was curbed or crushed."* At a General Court held May, 1637, an offensive war was ordered against the Pequots.
