Thomas Rose

     Born:  Prob about 1660. Oldest known marriage or child of the children of Thomas of which I am aware was the marriage of his daughter, Joanna, to Edward Avery on June 03, 1699. This should mean he was born, at the latest, 1699 less 36 years, at 18 years per generation, or 1663. He died in 1643, which would make him 80, if born at that time. Round to about 1660. Torrey estimates 1653, Sterry Genealogy 1655.

Immigration: Unknown.

Spouse: Hannah Allyn, daughter of immigrant and neighbor, Robert Allyn of New London and Norwich, Conn. Probably by 1680, Torrey gives "Sep 16, 1680?". I don't know the source for that date. Torrey shows first child born 1681? Earliest grandkids born probably about 1705, which easily fits a 1680 marriage date.

The proof for this relationship is reported to be in Robert Allyn's will or estate papers, of September 20, 1683, where he referred to her as Hannah Rose, but I have not yet seen a transcription or copy of that will. She survived Thomas and died three years later on January 05, 1746. History of New London, Connecticut, by Frances Manwaring Caulkins, 1895


      

Occupation: Unknown, probably a farmer, possibly with livestock. He seems to have had a fairly large estate for the times, which raises the question of whether he dabbled in real estate.

Death: April 19, 1744 from the Sterry Genealogy, reported by others to be November 20, 1743, New London Co, Conn, but I have not find that date or event in the Barbour Collection. These dates may be coming from dates in his estate packet.

Estate/Will: Per Caulkins, History of Norwich, "he died in 1743, leaving an estate valued at 2,498 pounds."


     See the Will of Thomas Rose

Children: He named eight daughters (two deceased, apparently both with heirs) and two sons (one deceased, with heirs) in his will.



Thomas Rose was included in list of sketches of "others having original home-lots and all the privileges of first proprietors" in History of Norwich, Connecticut, by Frances Manwaring Caulkins, 1874.


     "Rose. Thomas Rose was an early settler in the southern part of Preston. His name acquired notoriety from the situation of his dwelling house. A large oak tree near the house was a noted boundary mark between Norwich and New London, standing as a stately warder precisely at the southeast corner of Norwich. It was directly upon the line running east from the head of Poquetannock Cove to the bounds of Stonington, and is referred to in several surveys, acts, and patents."

The History of Norwich goes on to add:


     Pg 261, "(in a description of property being added to New London)... "thence upon a direct line to an oak tree marked and standing near the dwelling house of Thomas ROSE."
     Pg 354, "Zacharia Maynard, or Mayner, purchased a farm in 1697, near Robert ALLYN and Thomas ROSE, (in Ledyard). His wife was a daughter of Robert Geer."
