About Cicely Hunt

Her name as written on the ships' roles was: Sycillie Clark

John Griffiths Hunt in 1936 published a masterly genealogy of descendants of Thomas Hunt (although not familiar at that time with his ancestors, and the document contains many errors which have since been discovered) and followed through in 1959 with articles published in the NEHG Register in 1959 and 1960 which provide the best documentation yet seen on the ancestors of Thomas Hunt. Thomas Hunt, b. abt 1615-20 (no documentation of his birth or age found), prob. at Keston (Keyston), Northants, ENG, prob. came from there, and directly from ENG to the New Haven Colony in 1639 as an indentured servant to William Leete who was to become a Governor of the New Haven Colony, and later a Lt. Gov. and Governor of the Conn. Colony after the New Haven Colony was brought under the government of Conn. under the charter of 1662.

At New Haven he m. abt 1639 his wife Cicely (in many older genealogies including Wyman, her last name is given as Pasley or Paisley, but JGH gives impressive evidence that she was Cicely Clark, b. abt 1619, who came to Boston on the ship Planter in 1635 at age 16 with the Tuttle Family with whom she moved to New Haven Colony in 1639).

Cicely married Thomas Hunt At New Haven, CT about 1639.

She died September 1694 in Grove Farm, Westchester Co., New York.

In many older genealogies her last name is given as Pasley or Paisley.

More recent evidence indicates that she most likely was Cicely Clark, born about 1619, who came to Boston on the ship Planter in 1635 at age 16 with the Tuttle Family with whom she moved to New Haven Colony in 1639.
