SOUTHERN NEW YORK



Ebenezer, seventh child of Jonathan, the
second child of John the emigrant, had in ad-
dition to the children enumerated above : 7.
Enos, b. about 17 17. 8. Timothy, b. about
1719, d. 1781, served in the French and Indian
war ; his widow, Anna, survived him and was
appointed administratrix of his children, all
infants: i. Jeremiah. 2. George. 3. Asa.
4. Abel. 5. Jared, d. 1822, without issue. 6.
Timothy, d. 1816, had: i. Samuel H. 7.
Elijah. 8. Abigail. 9. Anna.

Ebenezer, the posthumous son of Jonathan,
the second son of John the emigrant, had also :
9. Rebecca who m. Samuel Bursham. 10.
Eliphalet. b. about 1722, settled at Nine Part-
ners, Dutchess CO., N. Y.

The above dates, which have been obtained
from the original records, do not agree as far
as the day of the month is concerned with the
genealogy of the children of Ebenezer, which
dates are probably the dates of baptism.

The above completes the descendants of
Jonathan, the second child of the emigrant
John, as far as they have been ascertained.

JOHN REYNOLDS. (SECOND) SON OF
JOHN THE EMIGRANT.

The first entry on the first page of the first
book of deeds in Greenwich, February i, 1663.
records the purchase from Angell Heusted of
sixteen acres of land on the west side of the
Mvanos river, by John Ronalds, of Green-
wich. This purchase was augmented by five
pieces of land which Jonathan Ronalds had
purchased of Richard Vowles, December 15,
1665, and transferred on the same day to his
"brother John Ronalds."

On October 24, 1669, John was made free-
man of Greenwich.

On July 18, 1670. William Grimes left all
his "lands to ye disposal of Joseph Mead,
John Renals and Eliphalet Jones to be dis-
posed of by them in such a wave as they
shall judcrc meet for ye inlarging of ve town
of Greenwich by accomodating such inhabitant
or inhabitants as shall be admitted into ye
town in an orderly wav. provided they bee
such men as ve afore sd Mead, Rcnols & Tones
shall bee desirable for ve promotintr of church
& commonwealth." This William Grimes had
on Januarv 7, 1666, been fined for swearing
and Jonathan Renolds had gone from Green-
wich to Stamford to appear aeainst him. It
was not until March 7, 1694. that it was de-



cided to dispose of the land "for ye use of a
ministrie and if no ministrie be in ye place ye
profit of sd land and meadow shall go to
helpe maintain such as shall be employed in
teaching children to reade."

In 1669 John was appointed one of a com-
mittee of five to purchase from the few re-
maining Indians living about the west end of
the town, the Horseneck tract three miles to
the west of "Old Greenwich," from which it
was separated by the Myanos river. The
original settlers remained for the most part
in the homelots at Old Greenwich and Horse-
neck, now Greenwich, was largely settled by
their children, who styled themselves as the
"27 Proprietors of 1672." Among these
Jonathan Reynolds ranked second and his
brother John was the twenty-second among
the proprietors.

By the Greenwich inventory of 1688 it ap-
pears that the number of "Inhabitants" had
increased to fifty, among whom was John
Reynolds, who was the wealthiest man. It
would appear that his homelot adjoined the
Church of the Second Society, for on Novem-
ber 28, 1694, he was appointed "to supervise
the building of a meeting house which is next
to his own house." His name constantly ap-
pears in the Greenwich Records up to the time
of his death. John was appointed justice of the
peace for Fairfield county, February 24, 1687,
and Kine's Commissioner, 1690-97.

His will, recorded in Fairfield, Connecticut,
dated April 21, 1699, and a codicil dated No-
vember 8, 1701. mentions his wife, Judah, and
children John, Judah for Judith), James,
IMary, Jonathan. Joshua and David. At the
time of his death in 1701 he was the wealthiest
"Inhabitant" of Greenwich. The widow was
appointed administratrix and the inventory
was taken prior to December 17, T701, when it
was filed. The three distributors were all of
Stamford. Joshua, the son of the deceased,
chose his brother, John Rcvnolds, as guardian,
while David chose Joseph Knapp as guardian.
To James was given land next to Gearsham
Lockwood. Joshua received land next to Jno.
Heusted. and David land next to Joseph Fer-
ris and Ephraim Palmer. The widow, his son
John, and son-in-law Samuel Retts. were ap-
pointed overseers. The daughter, Mary, had
already received her portion.

The town tax list of Greenwich in 1701-02
contains the following of the name:



SOUTHERN NEW YORK



403



Mr. John Renalls, 93 pounds; Sargent Jona-
than Renalls, 22 pounds; Joseph, Jr., 52 pounds;
Jonathan, Jr., 2J pounds; John, Jr.. 72 pounds;
Ebenezer, 44 pounds; James, 46 pounds; John, Sr.,
71 pounds.

On February 4, 1701-02, the town made
another distribution of land ; eighteen acres
were allotted to "Mr. Renalds deceased." He
was the largest landholder in Greenwich at
the time of his death, and this land was dis-
tributed among his sons, who, in 1706, sold
to one another the various portions which
their "honored father, Mr. John Renals de-
ceased" had obtained from the many distribu-
tions of town land, with the evident intention
of concentrating their individual holdings.

Judah, the wife of John, was probably the
daughter of John Palmer, one of the early
settlers of Greenwich. In the settlement of
his estate recorded at Fairfield. Connecticut,
the heirs of Judah Reynolds appear with Wil-
liam, Ephraim, James and Joseph Palmer.
John Palmer is stated to have "died many
years ago." This bears the entry "due August,
1716," an addition was made to the inventory
on April 17, 1778.

Her mother's name was Judah, who was
married after the death of John Palmer to
Jefifery Ferris, one of the two purchasers of
Greenwich Point, July 18, 1640, whose will,
executed Jantiary 6, 1664, recorded in Fair-
field, mentions his wife, "Judy." who was his
third wife. She receipted for her dower May
6, I (167, as "Judah Bowers, lately widow
Ferris, sometime wife to Jefifery Ferris."
Ferris left ten pounds apiece to the four
"boies" of his wife, evidently the William,
Ephraim. James and Joseph Palmer above
mentioned.

This is still further confirmed by the will of
Ephraim Palmer above mentioned, who died
August ig, 1684. and whose will is filed at
Fairfield in book 1675-1689, page 140. The
inventory was taken by John Reynolds ; John
Bowers was the administrator, and mentions
his daughter Judith, aged 11 years. If the
above relationship is correct, John Reynolds
would have been the brother-in-law of Eph-
raim Palmer, John Bowers would have been
his stepfather, and his daughter, Judith, born
in 1673, would have been named for his sister
Judith, wife of John Reynolds, or for his
mother.

The will of John Bowers, of Greenwich,
drawn March 16, 1693-94, gives property



"that was her mother's to his daughter-in-law,
Mrs. Judah Reynolds," and again speaks of
his "daughter Juda Reynolds and son Mr.
John Ronalds."

In Colonial times the stepchildren were re-
ceived into the family and referred to as sons
and daughters, thus in a deed dated April
8, 1675, and recorded at Greenwich in Vol.
A., p. 64, John Bowers gives land bounded by
that of John Renalds to his son "Ephraim
Palmer."

Judah, the wife of "Mr. John Ronalds,"
had her first child as early as 1670. As Su-
sanna Lockwood, the second wife of Jeffery
Ferris, did not die until December 23! 1660,
she could not have been a daughter of Jefifery
Ferris by his third marriage. Since Jefifery
Ferris did not die until May 31, 1666, it is
still less possible that she could have been a
daughter of John Bowers. Wc are forced,
therefore, to conclude that Judah Reynolds
was the daughter of Judah by a marriage pre-
vious to that to Jefifery Ferris, and the Palmer
records above quoted make us consider tlie
conclusion warranted that her father was John
Palmer.

John Bowers married, after the death of
Judah, Hannah Knapp, widow of Joshua
Knapp. the parents of Ruth, born 1667, who
married John Reynolds, son of Jonathan, and
of Joseph Knapp, who married Elizabeth,
daughter of Jonathan Reynolds.

John Reynolds and his wife, Judah Palmer,
had the following children :

I. John, born about 1670. 2. Judith, born
about 1672. 3. James, born 1674. 4. Mary.
5. Jonathan, 1682. 6. Joshua, born about
1686, and 7. David, born about 1689.
I. John — John — John.

I. John was known as "The Cooper." and
was born about 1670. He received from his
father in 1695 his house and homelot at
Horseneck. He died in December. 1732. and
left a will in which he appointed his brother
Tames and his son-in-law, Samuel Mills, as
his executors. He left the following children :
I. Peter, born about 1695. 2. Judith, b. about
1697. 3. David, b. about 1699. 4. Lydia and
5. Ruth.
