About Andrew Coe

ANDREW COE, son of John and Hannah (Barrett) Coe, was born about 1654 in Greenwich, CT. His name first appears in the records in 1679 as a witness on a deed in Stratford. In 1680 he was witness on a deed in Rye, where he resided all his life, owning land there, and also meadow lots on Manursing Island, previously belonging to his father. Andrew's birth date is determined from an affidavit at "Rie, June the 22nd 1681, Sworne before me Robert Treat, Deputy Governor," regarding a disturbance caused by Stephen Sherwood. Stephen Sherwood and Andrew Coe were closely associated. Although he bore witness to Sherwood's9, unseeming behavior, Andrew tried to smooth things with his last statement:

"Andrew Coe aged 27 years testifieth that yesterday being the 21st of ye present [mo.], "I heard some discourse between Stephen Sherwood and Mary Perce the wife of Jacob Perce at his house and I doe and did apprehend that the said Shirwood was far gon in Drink who spoke very rashly and [I] saw him at Mr. Ogden's Drink wine very freeley that very day and the occasion of the words (as I] took them up was upon Mary Perce's speech to Stephen Shirwood saying we heard the Indians and French are coming against us we had not need make trouble among our selves if we keep quarrelling we shall murder one another then to ye best of my remembrance Stephen Shirwood said ay and we will murder our King we could show a papist oath for it saith so if you will go to Goodrn Ogdens but i did not take him up that he spake any way approving of it as their said in the Oath but the Contrary."

Sherwood seems to have had a penchant for getting into trouble by saying the wrong thing at the right time, as is noted in other instances. On February 27, 1698, Andrew Coe was granted land in Port Chester, and a little later, in what was called the Pondfield Draft, he received twenty acres. In 1699 his home was mentioned as being near Fox Island, next to Stephen Sherwood. In the Swampland draft of 1702 he received lot number eight. In 1708 more land was laid out to him at Port Chester. On February 18, 1711, in the second division of lots of the Lame Wills Purchase, he received an allotment. In 1714 land was granted him at White Plains. He was townsman in Rye in 1701, sergeant in 1705, and on January 9, 1711, was made a vestryman of Christ Church.

He married Deborah Lyon, daughter of Thomas and Mary (Hoyt) Lyon. Her father was one of the early settlers of Rye. He was born in England about 1621, and married first Martha Winthrop, daughter of Henry and Elizabeth (Fones) Winthrop, and granddaughter of Governor John Winthrop. After her death he married Mary Hoyt, daughter of Simon and Susannah (Smith) Hoyt. Simon was born in Somerset, England, in 1595, and came to America in 1629. After Andrew Coe's death his widow married William Proby of Rye.

Andrew and Deborah had seven children, but John Coe III was the only son that left issue, and thus through him the entire posterity of John Coe by the name of Coe is preserved.
