About Nathaniel Gunn

Different sites have dates of birth for Nathaniel ranging from 1636 to 1640 (some even later). They generally agree that he died in 1663, so he did not have a long life, apparently barely living to see - if at all - his son Samuel.

Nathaniel Gunn and Sarah Day had three childen:

Samuel Gunn , born 1663, died 1 Aug 1755. Married to Elizabeth Brensen Wyatt on 22 Jan 1684/5. Elizabeth was born c 1665 in CT, died 2 Oct 1737 in CT.

Nathaniel Gunn, born 1658/1663 - died young.

Jasper Joseph Gunn, born 1658/1663 - died young.

Henry H. Taft, History of the Town of Sunderland, identifies Nathaniel Gunn as follows:

                Nathaniel, son of Jasper* (1),  m.  Nov. 17, 1658, Sarah, dau.
         Robert and Editha (Stebbins) Day of Hartford and settled in Branford, Ct., where he d. 1663.  

"Pistole" was not originally part of the name of Nathaniel Gunn. Taft was meticulous in his genealogical records. The name may have been added by later generations.

  • Savage says that Nathaniel was, perhaps son of Thomas, but that he was son of Jasper I have settled long ago to my satisfaction. = H. W. Taft. History of the Town of Sunderland, 1899
