About Roger Tyrrell (Terrill), of Milford

Roger Tyrrell arrived America (Boston) 14 Sept 1632 from Nanzy, Essex, England on the ship Lyon, and landed at Watertown--now Cambridge, Mass. and was married there. After tarrying awhile in Boston and nearby Roxbury, Mass. moved to Conn. and founded the colony at Milford.

He was a man of importance in the church and in the colony. It is on record that before he had joined the church, he was sent by the heirs of an estate to defend their interests before the New Haven court as "A man of very fit parts for the work".

The Memorial Bridge over the Wapawaug River bears on the coping the names of the first settlers of the town, Roger Tyrrell and his wife Abigail being of the number. Name spelled on it Terrill.

Roger1 Terrill of Milford

First published 29 April 2007 by NTT on her blog. Revised 14 Dec. 2009 (see revision history).

Although Roger1 Terrill's roots in the Old World aren't proven, he did leave some record of his life in New England.

In 1639, Roger1 was admitted to the Milford society along with eight other planters who were not "settled in the church." He rectified that status on 25 July 1644 when he joined the First Congregational Society at Milford, and Abigail "wife of Brother Roger Terrill" joined on 3 November of the same year. Although difficult to read from the copied microfilm record (LDS #1012263 Milford Congressional Church Records 1640-1675) below is from the surviving record for the year 1644:

Roger1 and Abigail had eleven recorded children:

1 - JOHN2, baptized August 1644 (more in a later post on this ancestor of Monroe County, IA Tyrrels).

2 - ABIGAIL2, baptized August 1644. By 1660 she had married William Tyler. They had twelve children born in Milford including twins born in 1670 who died "soon."

3 - HANNAH2, baptized August 1645. She married John Skeels of Woodbury, CT and they had their first child of record in November 1678. As a younger woman, in 1670, she had a "natural child" by Robert Hudson of Rye, New York. Hannah and John's first child, born in Woodbury, died young, but she had six other children. She died 11 November 1730.

4 - SAMUEL2, baptized 31 October 1647. He settled in Brookhaven, Long Island, NY and raised a family.

5 - ROGER2, baptized 20 January 1649/50, was a Founder of Woodbury, CT and is listed as a signer of Woodbury's Fundamental Articles in 1673. He joined the church there in 1676. He fathered seven recorded children. He died 17 April 1722.

6 - JOSEPH2, baptized in 1652, had "defective understanding." He died in 1689, or when about 37 years of age.

7 - MARY2, born 12 February 1653, baptized 2 March 1654, and died 3 May 1654 when only a little over a year old.

8 - EPHRAIM2, born 8 April 1655, baptized 15 April 1655 and died "soon."

9 - THOMAS2, born 23 October 1656. He removed to Elizabethtown, New Jersey, then to East Hampton, Long Island in 1688, and then Essex county, New Jersey in 1694 where he died in 1725. He was married twice, his first wife the daughter of Robert Dayton. His second wife was Mary Hampton. Thomas, a blacksmith, named four sons in his will.

10 - DANIEL2, born 1 March 1659/60, and died 10 June 1727. He remained in Milford and married first Mary, daughter of Thomas and Ruth (Clark) Fitch, and second, Abigail, daughter of Henry and Lydia (Brown) Bristol. He fathered ten recorded children, all by Mary Fitch.

11 - ELEAZER2, born 20 September 1662 and died the same day.

Roger1 died in either late 1681 or early 1682 as there is an inventory of his estate dated 22 February 1682, taken by John Beard, John Sherman and Samuel Clark. It totaled 701 pounds, a considerable amount at the time. Here is one of two pages from his inventory so you can see how extensive the listing:
