About Elizabeth Ford

Not a known child of William Hopkins, of Alvaston & Temperance Alsop



Samuel Ford was probably born about 1640 in the New Haven Colony. His father was Timothy Ford who had originally settled in Massachusetts, but had moved to New Haven, perhaps, with the party of colonists led by Theophilus Eaton and Rev. John Davenport. Samuel and his wife, Elizabeth, were married by William Leete, Governor of the colony, on January 27, 1672 (1673 N. S.) at the First Congegational Church in New Haven. Savage has recorded her maiden name as "Hopkins"; however, other reliable sources indicate that it was "Hipkins", which according to the consensus of later family researchers seems to have been the more likely spelling.1 Four children have been attributed to them. (In addition, Mr. Steven C. Perkins has noted that "Talmadge" has also been proposed as the maiden name of the wife of Samuel Ford; however, he further stated that such an assertion is not supported by any known evidence.) Elizabeth Hipkins Ford was admitted to church membership of the First Congregational Church on June 30, 1686. Her origin remains unknown.
