In King Phillips War in 1676, he with John Bradford, was appointed Commissary and Quartermaster. He owned much real estate, more than five thousand acres."

"With the genealogical lines established from the Saxon kings to Governor William Tracy of Virginia and his son, Lieutenant Thomas Tracy of Massachusetts and Connecticut, it is a comparatively easy matter to connect the living heirs in America today, through the intervening seven or eight generations, from sources familiar to Dr. Tracy, whose investigations entitle him to distinction not only as the genealogist of the Tracy family in America, but as one of the most geneorus contributors to American genealogical records."

Notes for DANIEL TRACY:

He died June 29, 1728, having been injured the day previous. "The inhabitants were engaged in raising a cart bridge twenty feet high and two hundred and fifty feet long 'over Shawtucket river near three miles from town' and had nearly completed the frame when on the 28th of June, just as they were putting together the upper work, a principal piece of timber which lay in the foundation of this upper work being spliced gave way at the joint and falling, tripped up the dependent frame which with its own weight careened and overset. One hundred feet of the bridge fell with forty men on it. The water was very low and the people were precipitated upon the rocks in all directions; twenty were severely wounded and two killed. Mr. Daniel Tracy, one of the last survivors of the old stock that came from Saybrook died the next day of his mortal wounds. He was not concerned in the affair, only as he was a benefactor to it, and went out that day to carry the people some provision and happened to be on the bridge at that juncture of d??ger."

One hundred feet of the bridge fell with forty men on it. The water was very low and the people were precipitated upon the rocks in all directions; twenty were severely wounded and two killed. Mr. Daniel Tracy, one of the last survivors of the old stock that came from Saybrook died the next day of his mortal wounds.

Notes for LT. THOMAS TRACY:

"...came to Salem, Massachusetts, 1636; went to Wethersfield, Connecticut, 1637; removed to Saybrook, from there to Norwich in 1659-1660. He came to America in the inerests of his friends Lord Say and Lord Brook, settled in Salem 1636, where land was granted him; he was a talented and active man, was much intrested in ship building. One of the thirty-five original proprietors of Norwich, 1659; Representative of Norwich to Legislature twenty-seven sessions. In 1645 he and Thomas Leffingwell, with others, released Uncas, the sachem of the Mohegans, when he was besieged. Uncas afterwards gave four hundred acres of land to Thomas Tracy and Thomas Leffingwell. Thomas Tracy was a Lieutenant of the New London Dragoons, enlisted to fight the Dutch and Indians. In King Phillips War in 1676, he with John Bradford, was appointed Commissary and Quartermaster. He owned much real estate, more than five thousand acres." (source: Colonial Familes in the United States)

"With the genealogical lines established from the Saxon kings to Governor William Tracy of Virginia and his son, Lieutenant Thomas Tracy of Massachusetts and Connecticut, it is a comparatively easy matter to connect the living heirs in America today, through the intervening seven or eight generations, from sources familiar to Dr. Tracy, whose investigations entitle him to distinction not only as the genealogist of the Tracy family in America, but as one of the most geneorus contributors to American genealogical records."

-------------------- 27 47. Thomas Tracy, born 1610, emigrated to America in 1635. He first went to Salem, Mass., thence to Windsor, Conn., thence to Saybrook in 1639. In 1541, he married the widow of Edward Mason whom he had seven children. In 1660 he removed with his family to Norwich, Conn. where he became a distinguished man, taking an active part in the civil and military affairs of the colony. He is known in colonial history as Lieutenant Thomas Tracy of Norwich, Conn. From him have descended the most numerous and prominent branch of the Tracys in this country. He died in Norwich, Conn. on November 7, 1685. Their children were: 1. John, born 1642, married Mary Winslow. 2. Thomas, born 1644, married. Sarah ¾. 3. Jonathan, born 1645, married Mary Griswold. 4. Mariam, born 1649, married Sear gent Thomas Waterman. 5. Dr. Solomon, born 1650, married Sarah Huntington. 6. Daniel, born 1652, married Abigail Adgate. 7. Samuel, born 1654, died Jan. 11, 1693, unmarried. Thomas Tracy married for a second time to Martha, descendant of John Bradford in 1676. He was again a widower and in 1683 married Mary, daughter of Nathaniel Foot. _____________________________________________________ Note~ Mrs. Scammon has added the following— "Copied from a letter from Mrs. Jessie Tracy Nix to Mrs. Scammon": . "I was in England two years and went to two of the large estates- Toddington in Gloucester, England, where the Tracys lived, father and son, for 700 years. The last owner lived in a wooden house 125 years old. A gorgeous ecclesiastical gothic house built by a Lord ¾ 65 thousand acres. Perhaps you already know the Tracys went into England with William the Conqueror in 1066. His great-grandson came to America in his own ship, with ten servants, wife, son and daughter. The wife and daughter were killed by the Indians. He took his son back to Hales Abbey, Gloucester, England. The son returned to America and eventually settled in Norwich, Conn. In the Harvard Museum are seven volumes giving the history of the Tracy Family, one of the most important families in Conn. I think you might locate this history by inquiring at Harvard. "King Phillips Wars" give the history of the Thomas Tracy of that period." Note~ This ends Mrs. Scammons genealogy of the Tracy family. From a letter to Mrs. Curtis Tracy, Franklin, Maine from Fred D. Tracy, Fairfield. Conn. 1953 ¾ “An aunt of ours, Mrs. Jessie Tracy Nix spent several years in England around 1934-1937 and while there did some considerable research into Tracy antecedents. She sent me a book "Toddington" which contains illustrations and " The Pedigrees of the Families of Tracy of Toddington and Sudeley of Sudeley". She also investigated the remains of Hales Abbey whence came the William Tracy who was a governor of Virginia Colony in 1520. She also went to a Tracy Reunion in France— held somewhere in Normandy by the head of the clan (named, I believe Count Tessier.) She wrote me several letters after her return and I talked with her several times before she died. One of her letters dated March 21, 1937 differs slightly from Dr. Dwight Tracy’s account, as mentioned in the third from the last paragraph of his address. She says: “Gov. William Tracy had 2 children, Thomas and. Anne. His wife, Mary and little girl were killed. by the Indians in Norfolk. After this he returned to Hales Abbey. Then Thomas came to Conn. where he distinguished himself in the Indian Wars". Where she learned this I do not know but I do remember her saying she went sightseeing to Toddington, (now in the hands of a Lord Wyemms) with a young curate whose mother was a Tracy and whose hobby was the family history." end quote.
