About Ens. Samuel Churchill

Ensign Samuel CHURCHILL settled in Newington Parish, where he bought

land of Joseph Allen in 1712, fifty-two acres, adjoining land of Capt.

Robert Wells and Jonathan Deming. He lived in a house on the hillside

just south of the present house in which Miss Mary Churchill lives

(1903). Like his father and grandfather he was active in public

affairs in town and church. His name appears very frequently in the

records of the Newington Society, where he served on the Prudential

and School Committees, and in minor affairs, like repairs on the

meeting-house, school-house, etc. One vote of the society, taken June

26, 1721, in anticipation of the settlement of the Rev. Elisha

Williams, is of interest, viz.:

Voted and agreed as followeth:
Samuel Hunn, Jabezeth Whittlesey, Richard Borman, and Samuel Churchel,

shall undertake to make twenty thousand bricks for Mr. Elisha

Williams, to take the care and provide the hands and all things for

said work.

In one of Wethersfield deeds he is called "Smith," indicating his

trade. In 1746 the General Assembly appointed him ensign of the local

military company, and he bore the title afterwards, and has been

designated in the family ever since as "Ensign Samuel.". Married, June

26, 1717, Martha Boardman, born Dec. 19, 1695, daughter of Daniel and

Hannah (Wright) Boardman, of Wethersfield, and the Grandaughter of

Samuel Boardman, of Cleydon, England, one of the first settlers, and

for many years one of the most prominent citizens of Wethersfield.

He was married to Martha BOARDMAN (daughter of Daniel BOARDMAN and

Hannah WRIGHT) on Jun 26 1717 in CT, ?. Martha BOARDMAN was born

between Dec 18 19 and 1695 in Wethersfield, CT. She died on Dec 14

1780 in Newington Parish, CT. Martha is the Grandaughter of Samuel

Boardman of Claydon, England near

Oxford, one of the first settlers of Wethersfield, CT.
Martha Bordman born in Wethersfield, Dec 19, 1695, married June 26,

1717, Samuel Churchill of Newington, Son of Joseph and Mary (Touzey)

Churchill. They lived at the south end of the present town of

Newington, on land inherited from their emigrant ancestor, Josias

Churchill, which is still in possession of the family. Samuel Churchill

was a leading man in the parish of Newington, his name frequently

occurring in its annals. His tombstone and that of his wife are to be

seen in its burying ground. "Ensign Samuel Churchill died July 21,

1767 and Martha, his widow, died Dec 14, 1780. (Weth. Rec.)
