About Captain Philip King

The below seem to be the only children verified. Josiah and Elijah are not authentic. Esther, Joanna, and Abigail are also in doubt. Many sources agree that he had seven children. And many sources agree that he had only one son. [Hatte Blejer June 6, 2016]

  1. Mary, — married John Leonard
  2. Elizabeth, — married John Hall and/or Samuel Richmond (Thomas Rogers Society only lists Samuel Richmond)
  3. Experience, — married Nicholas White
  4. Lydia, — married Nathaniel Williams and John Macomber (this seems to be incorrect since her niece Abigail Paddelford married a John Macomber born 1719)
  5. Hannah, — married Jonathan Paddelford
  6. Judith, -- married (1) Ebenezer Williams and (2) Ebenezer Robinson
  7. John -- married Alice Dean


I have detached Josiah, Elijah, and Johanna who were added to Geni by "Abraham Lincoln," which indicates an issue in itself. I have detached Abigail who supposedly married Jonathan Paddelford. There is no reliable evidence for her and sources agree that there were 7 children.

Birth: 1645 Weymouth Norfolk County Massachusetts, USA Death: Dec. 26, 1710 Taunton Bristol County Massachusetts, USA

"Phillip King, the first American ancestor of George Washington King, of Raynham, emigrated from England in company with a brother, Cyrus, and settled at Braintree some time prior to 1680. He came to Raynham, then Taunton, bought land, built a house, and became a permanent settler. The deed of sale to him of this land bears date 1680. He married Judith, daughter of Rev. William Whitman of Milton. He was a man of high character, courage, and decision, and was well adapted to be a leader in the pioneer days. He was a man of sterling honesty, and won the love of the Indians by his just dealings, and, during all the troublous times of Indian warfare, was never molested by them, nor his, property injured. He was captain, and, probably, a deputy to Plymouth. A large number attended his funeral, which was conducted with military honors. He had seven children." History of Bristol County
