About Richard Ogden, II

Born in England, he was by 1640 at Southampton, Long Island with his brother John. They were stone masons. They built a stone church for Gov. Kieft in 1642. Richard later settled in Fairfield, CT. There he contracted to run a mill on Mill River. He erected a stone house near the mill.

This branch of the Ogden family is known as the Fairfield Ogdens.

NOTE:Richard and his wife Mary, appear to have been living in Connecticut by the middle 1650's. It is presumed that they came to North America from England.

Information from Greg Stott

see his brother John Ogden for this comment: "NOTE: Anything from the Wheeler genealogy for any ancestors prior to John and Jane Ogden is basically fraudulent. All research on English ancestors was done by a hired "expert," not Wheeler himself, and was later discovered to be completely made up by that researcher. There is no "Bradley Plain, Hampshire," in England! However, research on American ancestors is basically valid. -------------------- BELCHER OGDEN MANSION"
