About Robert Wade
Robert Wade, Dorchester, 1635, removed soon to Hartford, where he was one of those who received land "by the courtesie of the town;" his home-lot in 1639 was on the east side of the road to the Cow Pasture, the one "sequestered" for John Pierce; he removed to Saybrook, where he was living in 1657, when he applied for and obtained a divorce from his wife, Joan (who had deserted him for fifteen years and was then in England). In 1669 he was a freeman in Norwich. "Robert Wade, of Windham, died in 1696."
