  • Willam Judson, the immigrant ancestor, was born in England, in Yorkshire, according to tradition, and came to America in 1634, to Concord, Massachusetts, where he lived for four years. Then he located at Hartford, Connecticut, ......He died July 29, 1662. His wife Grace died at New Haven, September 29, 1659 and he married (second) Elizabeth, widow of Benjamin Wilmot. The will of Elizabeth was dated January or February, 1685, and the inventory was taken November 10, 1685. Children, born in England: 1. Joseph, 1619, lived in Roxbury, Massachusetts, four years, then moved to Wethersfield, Connecticut, where he was made a freeman in May 1638; elected representative to general assembly, 1639; lieutenant of train band of Stratford, June, 1672, and served in King Philip's war in 1676; was very prominent in town affairs, and owned a large amount of land in Stratford, of which he was a founder; was deputy from that place to general assembly several times; commissioner of the town, also; married Sarah, daughter of John Porter, and had ten children. 2.

  • A little care is necessary to avoid confusion here. John Hurd, among the first settlers of Meriden, came so early to Stratford, that he represented the town in 1649. He had either a brother or a son Adam, probably his brother, because both Adam's, son John and John's son John, were m. in Dec. 1662. These two Johns are sometimes styled "cousins," on the record, which would make Adam a brother of the elder John. But again, Adam's son John is styled nephew of the other John, which implies brotherhood of their fathers, although the two terms of kinship are carelessly exchanged.
  • On Dec. 10 1662, JOHN HURD, Jr., (so called) son of Adam, m. ANN, widow of JOSHUA JUDSON, and he had Sarah, Dec. 1664; Joseph, Feb. ? 1666; Benjamin, Feb. 1667; Ebenezer, Nov. 1668. Ruth, Feb. 1670; John, Aug. 1673. This JOHN the son of Adam is he who went to Woodbury.
  • The other John son of John, m. Dec. 15, 1662, Sarah, dau. of John Thompson, and from 1664, to 1679, had eight children. John, Sarah, Hannah, Isaac, Jacob, Mary, Esther, Abigail, but of these I suppose you have no need.

  • Joshua Judson, (4) son of William, m. ANN, (who, Goodwin is confident was a dau. of John PORTER, of Windsor.) They had children Joshua, b. Dec., 1658; Samuel, b. Aug., 1660, and Ann, who must have been older than the sons--perhaps born 1656--for she married Arthur Perry about 1675.
  • Joshua Judson died 1661, aged 38. In 1662 his widow married JOHN HURD, Jr., and had by him six children.
