biography

From JACOB WATERHOUSE OF WETHERSFIELD AND NEW LONDON, CONN., AND SOME OF HIS DESCENDANTS, Compiled for CHARLES PAYSON BLINN, JR.By GRACE PRATT BONSALL, S.B., of Quincy, Mass.:

JACOB WATERHOUSE, the immigrant ancestor with whom this genealogy is concerned, whose English ancestry has not been traced, was in Wethersfield by 1637, when he was one of eighteen men from Wethersfield who fought in the Pequot Indian Campaign 26 May 1637, under the command of Capt. John Mason of Windsor (Bodge, Indian Wars, pp. 11—16),

His holdings in Wethersfield consisted of a house and 2 ½ acres of land, extending from Sandy Lane south to Fort Street (now Prison Street) north (Stiles' Ancient Wethersfleld, 1:310). In 1640 his land abutted on Edward Mason in little West Field (Manwaring Digest, 1:24).

In 1645 he removed to New London, then called "Pequot". There are references to the fact that marshes and meadows in the vicinity were mowed that year "at Fog-plain by Cary Latham and Jacob Waterhouse" (Caulkins, History of New London, p. 44).

He died in 1676, and his nuncupative will was probated on 21 Sept. 1676. (New London County Court Records.) A copy follows of the original record now to be found at the State Library, Hartford, in the Probate Department, New London Probate District — 5540a.

"The last will and testament of Jacob Waterhouse, deceased John Stebbins, Sen. and Alexander Pygan being at Jacob Waterhouse's Senr when he was sick, he being in perfect memory so far as we could perceive, he did desire us to bare in mind how he would have his estate disposed of, etc. And first, for my son Isaac, I wish I could give the rest of my children so good a portion as he hath had, but, however, I will him four shillings. And for Abraham, I have given him a peice of land already; for Jacob and John, I will my house and house lot I now live in, with a peice of salt medow at ifoxons and this they to have after my wives decease, and also all the rest of all my lands undisposed of I will to my four sons, namely, Jacob, and Joseph and John and Benjamin only that peice of land now improved for my wife to have the use of it during her life, and also I will to my daughter Elizabeth two cows and five pounds out of the land, if may be, and all the rest of my movables I will to my wife, etc.

"John Stebbings and Alexander Pygan made oath to what is above written. In Court Sept. 21, 1676. As Attest: John Allyn. Above Cogue: Attest: George Denison Clerk of ye Pro. Court N. London May 12th 1702".
