Notes for JOHN (II) RANDALL, JR.:

John Randall lived with his father in Westerly, on 300 acres of land along the Pawcatuck River purchased from Thomas Bell of Stonington, until he reached manhood when he came to Stonington and bought large tracts of land, which was intersected by the society line that divided the town of Stonington into two religious societies in 1721. Mr. Randall was a farmer and as such reduced his land grants to cultivation which he industriously and successfully improved during the remainder of his life. "The History of the Town of Stonington, County of New London, Connecticut, from its first settlement in 1649 to 1900, with a Genealogical Register of Stonington Families", by Richard Anson Wheeler, 1900 (SR)

The Randall land was about four miles northeast of Stonington Borough, known as Angwilla and considered the finest land of the town. These lands join on the north the lands of Thomas Brown, and have been in the Randall name as late as 1875. Elias Miner and his sons, now in 1906, own most of these farms. The Randall families were highly respected and progressive, ranking high in moral character, and prominent citizens of the town.

  • Crowell says that John Randall (who married Abigail Billings and Mary Baldwin) had fourteen children, and that he would mention two, Ichabod and Eleanor. Benjamin's wife is the only Eleanor Randall that Crowell then goes on to mention (Chute's genealogy). On the other hand, actually lists the entire fourteen children for John Randall, but does NOT include an "Eleanor". And yet Chute says John's son, Nathan, married a "sister," Eleanor. From the context, Chute could either have meant Nathan married a sister of his first wife, Mary Cottrell, or his own sister! But Chute does NOT list an Eleanor among Nathan's siblings! She would only be Nathan's half sister, and this would be a second marriage for both of them. Still, it seems unlikely he could even marry his half sister! So could Crowell have been mistaken about Eleanor's father being this John Randall? Interestingly, John's brother, Matthew Randall had a wife and daughter both named Eleanor. If this is who Eleanor Randall really was, then Crowell's statement that Eleanor's daughter, Humility Green, married "a cousin," Ichabod Randall, would still be perfectly consistent. Obviously I need some help here . . . more research!

During the Seven Years War, Ichabod served as a corporal in Captain Giles Russell's Company and participated in the Havana Expedition in the summer of 1762 under the leadership of Admiral George Pocock and liberated Havana, Cuba. Crowell's Scrapbook.

   The Randall land was about four miles northeast of Stonington Borough, known as Angwilla and considered the finest land of the town. These lands join on the north the lands of Thomas Brown, and have been in the Randall name as late as 1875. Elias Miner and his sons, now in 1906, own most of these farms. The Randall families were highly respected and progressive, ranking high in moral character, and prominent citizens of the town.

John Randall II was born June 6, 1666 at Bath, Somerset, England to John Randall and Elizabeth Morton Randall. He came to America with his parents in 1667 and lived with them in Westerly, Rhode Island until he reached manhood. He then purchased a large tract of land in Stonington and prepared it for planting. He was a successful farmer by trade. He married Abigail Billings in Stonington, New London County, Connecticut September 1, 1695 and their children were: Elizabeth, Johnothan, Mary, John III (#19024870), Dorothy, and Abigail. After the death of his first wife in 1705, he married Mary Palmer Baldwin on November 25, 1706 at Stonington. The children from this marriage were: Sarah, Nathan, Ichabod, Sarah (again), twins Joseph and Benjamin, Rebecca, and Joseph II. Fifty four year old John died on July 17, 1720 at Stonington, where he was a land proprietor, and is probably buried on his land in Stonington, where several of his children are buried.
