About Robert Kilton

Not too much information can be found about Robert Kilton, immigrant from England to Providence, RI, however by 1690 he was on an expedition to Canada wtih Captain Samuel Gallups company. July 23, 1691, Robert Kilton purchased 4 acres of land from Richard Smith of Kings Town (Providence, RI area). By 1693 he received a loan on his farm for a seven year period. He missed a payment on the loan and thereby as one might say, lost the farm. The loan was paid off by Capt Arthur Fenner who was Bethiah Kilton's (Fenner) father. The property did get passed on down to Robert's son Samual. Information is from William Richard Cutter Book, 1914. Posted by James and updated March 16, 2013.

The Fenner family, Boston Library: 14 Dec 1691, Walter Clark, of Newport, as administrator on estate of Thomas Sucklin, deeded to Capt. Arthur Fenner a town right of five acres, bounded north by land of Robert Kilton, west and south by highway, east by land of Henry Browne, together with commonage, for the sun of Pound 5, to be paid for the use of the people called Quakers in said island. This towne right was passed over by Capt. Fenner to his son-in-law, Robert Kilton, on 25th Feb 1702. The above indicates where the residence of Robert Kilton was. Posted by James April 2, 2013. Robert Kilton did arrive from England before 1690. Ref; Americana volume 15, page CXI. Posted by James November 19, 2014
