About John Andrews

From The Genealogical History of John and Mary Andrews of Farmington, CT / 1640s {googlebooks}, page 66-68:

John Andrews, son of Daniel, sen., of Farmington, married 26th June, 1712 to Mary, daughter of Jacob Goff.of Wethersfleld, who was born 15th Nov. 1693 and was sister to Mabel, the wife of John's brother Daniel. John & Mary lived in the limits of Wethersfield, but belonged to Kensington parish. He was called sergeant; he died 16th June, 1740, aged 60 years and six days, and was at that time called Lieut. John. Mary Goff Andrews died 7th Sept. 1769, at the house of Moses, her son, in New Britain, and a red sandstone is at her grave, south side of our cemetery.

John Andrews's inventory was £676 4s. Ad.; no will, but administration granted to widow Mary and his eldest son David {see below}. She was a constituent member of New Britain church from the church in Kensington, 1758. This inventory taken 6th Oct., 1710, by Daniel Andrus, Thomas Deming, and Klihn [probably Elihu] Dickinson, and one item was one-eighth part of a grist-mill; David had a double portion, viz. £28 18$. 4 J</.; to Moses, Mary, Abraham, [ocr errors][ocr errors] and Esther, each £14 9s. 2d., and Joseph Beckley, Isaac North, and Benjamin Beckley, were distributors.

  • 73. David, born 28th Jan., 1718, married Margaret. David Andrews (eldest son of sergeant John, of Wethersfield and his wife Mary Goff) was born 28th Jan. 1718 at Wethersfield. He was administrator, with his mother, on the estate of his father in 1710. In 1749, from Wethersfield, he deeded land in Waterbury; was living in Tarwinton, 1787, when he deeded to his brother, Moses, two-fifths of all lands he was entitled to from lands laid out on the right of his grand-father, Daniel Andrews, sen. one of the 84 proprietors, in 1672, of the ancient town of Farmington. The children of David & Margaret, except Mary, were born in Waterbury; see that town record for births. The mother died there, 19th April, 1769. Much uncertainty about this family.

They lived near Wethersfield and Farmington town line and about the time of their marriage that part of Farmington was constituted a parish and called Great Swamp, the church being organized 1712, and their record says Daniel Andrus joined us by letter from Harl ford church, 1718. Their house was where Philo Webster's now, 186 stands, on the summit of the hill, east of the Hartford and New Haven turnpike. Daniel and his brother John gave a bond or note of £50 to Ne»J ington, 1720, for liberty to join the Great Swamp society. I think one the of their neighbors were included in the list of those bought off, but only these two signed the note. Daniel Andrus and John Root were a special committee to put in galleries to the meeting house of " Great Swamp" Society, 1720, which duty was promptly and fully performed. He died 21s Aug., 1748,in his 77th year; buried in "Christian Lane" Cemetery; at sand-stone shows that his body lies towards the south-west corner. Estate settled by probate court at Hartford; inventory amounted to £101 17s. presented Oct., 1748. This Golf family claimed relationship to Goffs, the regicide. Mabel the widow died 9th May, 1768, aged 77 years, six months, nine days.
