was in hand and so successively and when
he was called in again and demanded if so
much gave him content and so content and
satisfaction was by every one of these men
acknowledged and they set down these num-
bers of acres of marsh and upland after the
same proportion that followeth xxx Mr. Den-
ton 14 acres xxx John Renoulds 11 acres."
(Stamford Records, p. 7.)

The New Haven Colony had not been fully
satisfied by the one hundred bushels of corn,
so that an assessment was laid to make this
good. The following is John Reynolds' ac-
count: "For rate — now 56.10.0 and due at W.
13. s. 6 d and to received Jo Renoulds 17 S.
II d. makes 4. lbs.08-3.,' each of whom sub-
scribed a 'pick.' The next mention of him is
in a list of twelve men. Here his name ap-
pears as Jo. Renoulds. Latter is a tax list to
make good the loss of the town mill and
dam and for building a 'captain's house.'
'Jo. Reynoulds debtor for loss by mill 269,
house 13 both 39.9 and he hath paid (for loss)
at mill. First bill 9 s. 6. and dam 9 s. 3 s.
house, 12 s. last charge 5. s. all 38 s. 6d.' "

The last mention of him is in a deed recorded
March, 1651, of property in the extreme west
section of the town near the site of Old
Greenwich, bounded by "ye lot which was
John Renoles." (Stamford Records, p. 51.)

On page 55 of the original Stamford rec-
ords is recorded the marriage of his daugh-
ter: "Peter Ferris and Elizabeth Rincalls
Joyned ye 15 July. 1654." Her husband. Free-
man, of Stamford. Connecticut, 1662, renre-
sentatTve 1667. was the son of Jeffrey Fer-
ris, one of the seven original proprietors of
Greenwich, who had, like John Reynolds, re-
moved successively from Watcrtown and
Wethersficid to .Stamford. Thcv had the fol-
lowing children: i. Joseph, son of Peter Fer-



ris, b. 20-6-1657, (Stam. Rec. p. 74.) 2. Illeg-
ible, son of Peter Ferris, illegible, 1659. 3.
Elizabeth, dau. of Peter Ferris, b. 28-11-1659
— d — 5-2-1660, Stamford Rec. p. 98. 4. Mary,
dau. of Peter Ferris, b. May 2, 1662. (Stam.
Rec. p. 76.) 5. Elizabeth, dau. of Peter Ferris,
b. Jan. 2, 1664. (Stam. Rec. p. 76.)

As Peter Ferris is mentioned as Sen. in
the entry of his death, September 28, 1706, it
is probable that the illegible name was Peter.

On page 19 of the Stamford Records is en-
tered the death of the wife of John : "Sarrah
Reanolds died 31-16-1657." On page 20 a
second entry gives it as "Sarra Reanols died
ye 31 August 1657." We have records of
only three of John's children: i. Elizabeth,
b. about 1634. 2. Jonathan, b. about 1636. 3.
John, b. about 1638.

The subsequent history of John is unde-
termined. A John Reynolds, often confused
with him, was at Wethersfield as early as
June 29, 1674, when he had by Naomi Lati-
mer a son John, and a second son Jonathan.
As Naomi Latimer was born April 4, 1648, he
would have been approximately thirty-six
years older than his wife, and sixty-two years
of age when the first child was born. These
children are not to be confounded with the
John and Jonathan of Greenwich, as the his-
tories of all four are well known. It is said
that only a few years ago there was at Weth-
ersfield a tombstone to a certain John Rey-
nolds who died in 1662. The constant recur-
rence of the names John and Jonathan in the
Greenwich and Wethersfield families impliei
an intimate connection.

Jonathan, eldest son of John the Emigrant.

The site of "Old Greenwich," now Sound
Beach, lying some three miles to the west of
Stamford, had been purchased from the In-
dians on behalf of the New Haven Colony,
on July 18. 1640. by Robert Peaks and Cap-
tain Daniel Patrick, the latter a companion of
John Reynolds of Watertown and Wethers-
field.

About 1653 many of the settlers of Stam-
ford had moved there, and among the earl-
iest inhabitants were Jonathan and John Rey-
nolds, whose land lay along the Two Brothers'
Brook, which fact probably suggested its
name.

Subsequently to 1653 the name of Jonathan
Reynolds appears but once in the Stamford
Records: "Jan. 7, 1666, Wm. Grimes for

swearing veanly by ye name of God it being
fully proved by Mr. Jones and Jonathan Re-
nolds and Jos. Knapp ye said Grimes is fined
ten shillings and to pay all charges of his be-
ing to Stamford which is four shillings to each
man." This Grimes at that time was an
"Inhabitant" of Greenwich, as were the wit-
nesses.

In the Greenwich Town Records is an ac-
count of a town meeting held February 5,
1664, in which it was proposed to divide the
"common lands by a rule of proportion accord-
ing to what each man's estate shall be visable."
The proprietors are given as follows : "Jeffre
Ferris Sense, Joshua Knapp Sense, Joseph
Ferris, Jonathan Reynolds. Angell Heusted,
John Mead Sense, John Hobbe." These were
termed the "Seven Proprietors." (Sense is an
abbreviation for Senior.)

One of the earliest deeds recorded at Green-
wich (p. 3, vol. A.) is a bill of sale bearing
date December 13, 1665, from Richard \'owles
of Rye to Jonathan Ronalds, of Green-
wich, of "seven acres of upland more or lesse
which lieth within the compass of ye land
that was called ye ox pasture, situate in Green-
wich, bounded as followeth. northerly by ye
hye way. westerly by Grimes land and south-
erly by Joseph Ferrises land. Easterly by a
Swamp, also three acres of Maddow more or
less bounded southwest by Jonathan Ronaldoes
land. North east by Joseph Ferris, Westerly
by Joshua Knapps' land and Eastardly by
Jonathan Ronoldes upland also a sartaine par-
soli of upland XXX also my whole rite and
interest Elizabeth Neck also mv whole inter-
est in land unto Myanos River." At the bot-
tom of the page is the following :

I. Jonathan Ronalds do ty this firmly assigne
and make over this within "bill of sale unto my
Brother John Ronalds freely oneing and ac-
knowledging the whole rite and interest in ye
aforsayd bill of sa'e to be his to wit my brother
John Reyno'ds and for a witness of ye truth of
ye same I have set to my hand according to date
within written. Jonathan Ronalds.
In presence of

Joseph IMead.
Timothy Knapp,

This bill and deed entered in the year of our
Lord 1682. Februari 27.

In 1667 Jonathan Reynolds was made a
member of the Assembly for Greenwich, and
on October 24tli, 1669, he was made a free-
man of Connecticut by the Assembly of Green-
wich. On December 28th, 1669, Jonathan Rey-



nolds, Sargent Lockwood, John Hobby, Joshua
Knapp, John Mead, and Joseph Mead, were
appointed to free the town of all claims by
Daniel Patrick, the son of Daniel Patrick,
formerly Patroon of the Manor, who now ap-
peared laying claims to his father's land. The
committee for the settlers who held by squat-
ter sovereignty bought him off by paying a
horse, saddle and bridle and fifty pounds. He
served on various important committees for
the laying out of lands, for making survey of
Horseneck to see if it be suitable for the
settlement of a township, as surveyor of
highways, etc., all of which appointments are
recorded in the Common Place I5ook of Green-
wich. The following is a last mention of
Jonathan in the Greenwich Records: "At
town meeting 13, 12th month, Joshua Knapp
is chosen to be a townman in the room of
Jonathan Reynolds." No other business was
considered at this meeting. The last previous
meeting was November 13, 1673. It is there-
fore probable that he died in November or
December, 1673.

Letters of administration on his estate now
filed at Fairfield, Connecticut, January 23,
1673-74, speak of him as "lately deceased,"
and mention his children : Jonathan R., about
13 years; John R., about 11 years: Joseph
R., about 41^2 years ; Rebecca R., about 14
years ; Sarah R., aged 8 last November 6th ;
Elizabeth R., aged 6 last August.

Apportionment was by Angell Heusted and
Jonathan Knapp. He left a "widow Renal.':"
and a total estate of three hundred and fifty-
eight pounds. Inventory taken March 10,
1673-74. Ebenezer, a posthumous child, was
born in 1673.

The apportionment was by Angell Heusted,
and showed a total estate of three hundred and
fifty-eight pounds. The will of Angell Heus-
ted, also filed at Fairfield in 1706, mentions
his "son-in-law Jonathan Rcnalds." It is pos-
sible that the "widow Renals" mentioned in
the apportionment might have been a daughter
of Heusted. While the above estate would not
to-day be considered a large one, it was suf-
ficient to place him second among the
"Twentv-seven Proprietors of 1672," who pur-
chased the Horseneck tract, for at that time
the rights in the distribution of land were
based upon the wealth of the colonists.

The following are the descendants of Jona-
than Revnolds as far as they have been as-
