About Elisha Loveland Sr

Genealogy of the Loveland Family in the United States of America from 1635 to 1892


Elisha, b 1709, m Hannah Hills.


The Probate records at Hartford

give the probable time of Thomas2 death, and the ages and names

of his minor children. Guardians were appointed for them in 1725.

Elisha chose Thomas Welles;


Deed Book 4, p. 272: "Thomas3 Loveland to his brother Eli-

sha;con. £j. Oct. 10, 1737." This was about the time Elisha

was married.


Traditional and

circumstantial evidence leads us to believe that Thomas1 Loveland

was born in this country, and that his grandfather, whatever his

name, died on the passage, leaving a widow and three sons to continue

the voyage to this country. His son Robert died at New

London, Conn., 1669; John, another son, died in Glastonbury or

in Hartford near the Glastonburv line, 1670; both old men.

Another son, probably Elisha, was drowned in Connecticut River.

These three men and their father and mother were born in England.

We believe that Robert was the father of Thomas' Love-

land. The reason why we have not commenced our count with

the Loveland who died on the passage, or with Robert, is, that

we have no positive recorded evidence connecting them to him

whom we know to be the progenitor of all the Lovelands recorded

in the Loveland Genealogy. \Ve have therefore commenced our

count with Thomas' Loveland, grandfather of Elisha3 Loveland. -

ELISHA3 LOVELAND (Thomas2, Thomas1 ) was b in 

Glas., Conn., 1709. Vol. x, p. loo, Probate Records: "Elisha

Loveland, a minor about 16 years of age, of Glas., chooses Thomas

Welles as guardian, which court allows." Dated 1725. He m in

Glas., Jan'y 19, 1737, Hannah Hills, b in G., June 24, 1716. Both
