About William Hurlburt, of Windsor & Northampton

came to Dorchester on the Mary & John in 1630

From Hale-House and Related Lines (Jacobus)

Samuel Allen's widow Ann married William Hulbert of Windsor, who had come probably in the Mary and John, 1630, and settled first at Dorchester. By 1647 he had moved to Hartford, where his home lot was recorded in May 1648. On 8 Sep 1655 he sold to William Lewis and moved to Northampton, Mass., where he died 7 Apr 1694.

The notes of the late Carles E. Banks, extracted from Winthrop's Medical Journal, show that John Winthrop in 1667 mentioned William Hulbert of Northampton, then above 60 years old; and in 1664, treated "Nehemiah Allen 30 yrs son of Goodman Hulbert's wife of Northampton", and John Hulbert, 24 yrs, and Wiliam Hulbert, 10 years, sons of "G. Hulbert of Northampton".

The youngest son William was probably by the widow, Ann Allen, and quite possibly the daughter Ann was also, since she was born almost two full years after Samuel Allen died, and was given the name Ann. William Hulbert, Jr., apparently named his daughter Anna after his mother, and may have named his son Obadiah after his half-brother, Obadiah Allen.


"His widow Ann Allen (her maiden name unknown) married William Hurlburt, who also settled in Windsor, becoming his second wife. The removed to Harford, Conn, and in 1655, again removed to Northampton, Mass, taking the Allen children with them. Hurlburt became one of Northhampton's foremost citizens and churchmen. He died April 17th, 1664. She died April 18th, 1687." --Clark F. Allen

COMMENTS: As a resident of New England in 1630 whose first known residence was Dorchester, William Hulbird is a possible passenger on the Mary & John, but as his English origin is not as yet known he should not be placed there without further evidence. The gap of a year and a half between his request for freemanship and his admission may indicate that he made a return trip to England in the interim, although other explanations are possible. An English origin has been proposed for Willliam Hulbird, based solely on the baptism of a "William Hulbert" at about the right time [M&JCH 13:9, citing "Book by Henry Calton Hulbert, date and publisher unknown"], but this falls far short of proof.
