About Hannah Scott

Smith, Edward R. Early Connecticut Scott Families: In Search of Edmund. Connecticut Nutmegger. (Connecticut Society of Genealogists, Dec 1994), 27:397-98. "It is broadly accepted that Edmund's first wife was Hannah, daughter of Thomas Bird. The only hard evidence we have located is in a record of the distribution of Thomas Bird's estate, dated 3 March 1663/4, wherein we learn that daughter Hannah had married a Scott. Available data on other Connecticut Scott families offers no other possible connection, adding credence to this connection."

Hannah Mary Bird (Scott) was born o/a 1620 d. 1 Marh 1678 Hartford, Hartford, CT.

Taken from the 'About Me' of

  • * ↑ Edmund Scott, in Savage, James. A Genealogical Dictionary of the First Settlers of New England: Showing Three Generations of Those Who Came Before May, 1692, on the Basis of Farmer's Register. (Boston: Little, Brown, and Co, 1860-1862), 4:36-37.

"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."


↑ Edmund Scott, Sen., in Bronson, Henry. The History of Waterbury, Connecticut: The Original Township Embracing Present Watertown and Plymouth, and Parts of Oxford, Wolcott, Middlebury, Prospect and Naugatuck. With an Appendix of Biography, Genealogy and Statistics . (Waterbury, Connecticut: Bronson Brothers, 1858), 181-82.

"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."
