About Benjamin Farrington

Benjamin Farrington

  • BIRTH: 15 Aug 1672  Dedham,Norfolk,MA
  • PARENTS: John Farrington, Mary Bullard 
  • MAR: No mar rec found. Widow Abigail was granted administration of his estate, below.
  • DEATH: No death rec found. See the adm of estate of Benjamin Farrington of Branford, 4 Jan 1713/4, inv 30 Dec 1713, New Haven District Probate, 4:220-23, 364 (FHL #005295).


(From WFT Vol. 5, pedigree #3653): William Gould, estimated birth between 1661-1698 (quite a wide window!); married 11 June 1718 as the second husband of Abigail Farrington (born 1676 Branford, CT; died 25 May 1725 Branford, CT). Abigail Farrington's first husband was Benjamin Farrington, and this record doesn't make clear whether Abigail was a Farrington by birth or only by marriage. I would guess the latter because of the fact that Benjamin Farrington's parents are named in this record, but Abigail's are not.
