Comments

Origins Unknown. Thomas Scott, of Hartford (died 1643) did not list a son Edmund in his will.

From http://genforum.genealogy.com/scott/messages/11511.html

"You are correct in thinking that Thomas Scott, of Rattlesden & Ipswich was not the father of Edmund Scott ...Hopefully one day the ancestry of Edmund will be found."

   "Edmund (Scott), Farmington 1649, by first w. had seven ch. was freem. 1669, had two more ch. by sec. w. Eliz. wid. of Thomas Upson, but the date of ms. or bs. for neither is told. From his will of 11 June 1690, we gain the names of all, Edmund; Samuel, b. 1660; Jonathan; George; David; Robert; Joseph; Eliz. Davis; and Hannah, w. of John Brunson; yet we shall not be justif. in suppos. this to be the order of success. exc. that the two s. last nam. were by sec. w. nor will conject. be reasona. to determine the priority of the d. whose h.'s name is not seen. Positive informat. however, is afford. on two points, that he was an orig. propr. of Waterbury, and there d. 1691."

   "He settled in Farmington, with children, at an early date, and m. the widow of Thomas Upson. His two youngest children, Robert and Joseph, were by her. He was one of the freemen of Farmington of 1669 and one of the proprietors of 1672. A subscriber of 1674, he was among the earliest that came to Mattatuck. His regular allotments of fence, &c., indicate that with him there was no vascillation of purpose, and that he discharged, seasonably, all his obligations. He is mentioned as grantee as late as Jan. 21, 1689-90, and d. soon after, before June 2, 1690. At the last date, his will was proved, but his inventory, showing a small estate of £17, 11s. 6d., was not presented to Court till April, 1691. His nine children are named on the probate record, several of whom remained in Waterbury."
   If Manwaring's abstract is correct in stating that Edmund executed his deed of gift on 11 June 1690, Bronson's statement that his will was proved on 2 June 1690 must be incorrect.

   "… earliest knowledge of Edmund is drawn from Julius Gay notes taken from Farmington Town records, located amongst the manuscript collections at the Connecticut Historical society: Edmund, 'in 1671, is freed from training and warding being sixty odd years of age.' Relying on this, it appears that Edmund was born about 1611, or earlier."

Name: Edmund SCOTT Given Name: Edmund Surname: Scott Sex: M _UID: 7737E8741C89D3459C680A015994414A4E00 Note: A number of online databases link Edmund Scott to Thomas Scott (1594-1654) and Elizabeth Strutt of Ipswich, Massachusetts. However Robert Charles Anderson in the Great Migration series does NOT have him linked to these parents. Neither does Anderson link them to Thomas (1597-1643) and Ann Scott of Hartford, Connecticut.

A number of online databases attribute most of the children of Edmund Scott to first wife Hannah Bird, but since Elizabeth Fuller's husband Thomas Upson died in 1655, it is reasonable that she might have remarried within a year or two after his death, making a possible marriage to Edmund Scott as early as 1656/57, Given the marriage dates of several of the sons it would appear they were born abt 1660 and following. Hannah Scott appears to have been a daughter of Hannah Bird, but I cannot reasonably place any of the other children with her. When and where did Hannah die and were there other children born close to the year 1643. When did Elizabeth marry Edmund Scott? Jacobus as quoted below believed at least six of the sons were children of Elizabeth Fuller.

Who was the widow Porter listed in the will -- a 3rd party or a relative and possible widow to Edmund Scott?

From Families of Old Fairfield by D. L. Jacobus:

The estate of John Scott of Wallingford 8 Dec 1713 was ordered distributed in eight equal shares to Edmund, Samuel, George, David, Jonathan, and Robert Scott, Sarah wife of Roger Terrill and Robert Risdon...The six Scotts were brothers, sons of the first Edmund Scott of Farmington (prob. by his second wife Elizabeth (Fuller) Upson. They had a seventh brother Joseph who died at Farmington in 1708 and was prob. father of the John whose estate was distributed......
