Descendants of Humphrey Tiffany
Generation No. 1
1. SQUIRE HUMPHREY1 TIFFANY was born 04 June 1630 in London (Middlesex Co.) England, and died 15 July 1685 in Bet. Swansea & Boston, Massachusetts. He married ELIZABETH ? Abt. 1666 in ?. She was born 1645 in Swansea (Bristol Co.) Massachusetts, and died Unknown in ?.
The following information is taken from the article, "Consider Tiffany (1733-1796), author of 'A Tory's View of Colonial America', His Background, History and Genealogy". Researched and prepared by George Bradford TIFFANY; Revised March 2000, Center Harbor, New Hampshire. Full credit is given to Mr. TIFFANY and is only repeated here to inform later members of the TIFFANY lineage of its existance.
Squire Humphrey TIFFANY was born in London, England on 4 June 1630 and christened on the same date in St. John, Hackney Parish, London, England. As an adult, he served as a Justice of the Peace and emigrated to America sometime around 1660.
The title of SQUIRE indicates a man of good birth and independent means with a coat of arms granted by the College of Heralds -- from whence comes the TIFFANY Coat of Arms. The TIFFANY escutcheon pictured a knight garlanded with oak leaves, his visored helmet surmounted by the head of a greyhound biting a stag's foot. A chevron and three lions were emblazoned on his breastplate above the motto, 'Patria Fidelis'. A huntsman and a patriot, in short, Squire TIFFANY was a gentleman. But whether he left England to protect his faith, his pocketbook, or both, is not known.
Squire Humphrey and his wife, Elizabeth, were first recorded on the ledgers of the Plimouth Colony of Massachusetts Bay in 1660. Presumably they had arrived from England shortly before that date, thus placing him in his late 20s when he arrived in America. If so, like their Mayflower predecessors, they may well have been fleeing Anglican persecution, for Oliver Cromwell had died in 1658 and his Puritan Roundheads were in rout. On the other hand, if Squire Humphrey had arrived in America during Cromwell's rule, it is also possible, even probable, that he was fleeing the economic chaos that the politically inept soldier had wrought. 1.
1. This and the previous paragraph paraphrase material contained in "The Last Tiffany" by Michael John Burlingham, published in 1989 by Atheneum of New York. The dates were not authenticated.
A mention of Squire Humphrey occurs in the "Records of ancient Rehoboth (Massachusetts) dated 22 January 1663 showing "Humphrey TIFFANY permitted to be a sojourner and to buy and hire." The Latter-Day Saints Ancestral Files show the birth of the couple's first child, Ebenezer(2), as occuring in Rehoboth, Bristol County, Massachusetts, in 1663 and the birth of their second child, James(2), as occuring in Milton, Massachusetts, in 1666. 2. Squire Humphrey thus appears to have relocated to Milton, Massachusetts, sometime between 1663 and 1666.
2. The Town of Rehoboth, Massachusetts, then encompassed the present towns of Attleboro, Rehoboth, Seekonk, and parts of Swansea, Massachusetts and Pawtucket, Rhode Island.
The Records of Milton, Massachusetts, show the third child, Thomas(2), was born on 11 June 1668. 3. Humphrey was listed on the 1678 Tax List in Milton as "Umphrey Tifiny." On 21 October 1680, the Reverend Peter Thacher brought Humphrey's son James(2) to live with him " perfect him in reading, and to teach him to write." James(2) would have been about age 14 at the time. A daughter, Elizabeth(2), was born in Milton on 11 April 1680. Humphrey and his wife, Elizabeth, among several others, were Thanksgiving dinner guests of the Rev. Thacher on 25 November 1680 at the Rev. Thacher's home in Milton. 4. A second daughter, Sarah(2), was born to Humphrey and Elizabeth in Swansea, Massachusetts, on 6 July 1683, leading to the presumption that Squire Humphrey had left Milton by 1682. 5. He was killed by lightning in Swansea, Massachusetts, on 15 July 1685 at the age of 55. 6.
3. The birth dates given for Squire Humphrey's children were taken from Page 62, "Milton Records -- Births, Marriages and Deaths, 1662-1843", Town of Milton, Massachusetts. Published by Alfred Mudge & Son Printers. Boston, Massachsetts, 1900.
4. References from the Journal of Rev. Peter Thacher, incorporated as "Appendix B" in "The History of Milton, Mass., 1640 to 1887", edited by A.K. Teele.
5. On 6 November 1681, the Rev. Peter Thacher, first pastor in Milton, baptized Squire Humphrey's sons Thomas(2), Hezekiah(2), Ebenezer(2), and James(2), who were then all over the age of 11, and the older brothers of William(2), age 9, Consider(2), age 6, and Ephraim(2), age 4, who were not baptized at that time. Squire Humphrey and his wife were clearly members of Rev. Thacher's church. It is interesting to note that Rev. Thacher was a Congregational (Puritan) minister and a colleague of the activist minister, Rev. Cotton Mather. How then, or why, Squire Humphrey's great grandson, Consider(4), became such a rabid member of the Anglican Church to whom Congregationalists were an anathema is a total mystery.
6. Many dates and places noted herein were abstracted from "The Tiffanys in America" by Ella F. (Tiffany) Wright, published by Idylwood, Mattatuck Press, Waterbury Blank Book Mfg. Co., Waterbury, Connecticut, 1904.

In Reply to: Re: Tiffany-Dodge doubts, St Johns, Hackney by G. Bradford Tiffany of 614

Hello G.,

Thank you for the note on Humphrey's movements, and especially the Thanksgiving reference. While we don't have actual records of the births of the first two boys I suspect that a Rehoboth birth for Ebenezer in the early 1660s (to be of age, ae. at least about 21, by 27 March "1682", per Plymouth COLONY Deeds 5:253-54] is about right, and somewhere in the mid-1660s for James -- whether in Rehoboth or Milton is not clear. Humphrey's first appearance in Milton town records (owing a day's work to the town) apparently does not occur until 1670 (THE AMERICAN GENEALOGIST 10 [1933-34]: 138), and he isn't on the minister's rate list, and the rate list "for the use of the towne," until 30 Dec. 1674 (MILTON TOWN RECORDS [1930], p. 343). True, young Thomas's birth appears in Milton VRs in 1668, but I can't believe that thrifty Yankee town fathers would ignore an able-bodied potential taxpayer / candidate for town work for as more than a year or so! It would not surprise me if H's lovely wife Elizabeth ---- had ties to Dorchester/Milton, as several other families went back and forth between there and Rehoboth/Swansea/Bristol (haven't found any links though!). The last date he appears in Milton town records is 22nd day, 12 mo. 1680, which if I am calculating it correctly would be about 22 March 1680/1, and he's off by the 1681/2 list.

Humphrey retained some right at Rehoboth, since "Humphrey Tiffany heirs" were on a list of proprietors of Rehoboth not resident there, 7 Feb. 1689 (which may be 1689/90) (J.N. Arnold, VITAL RECORD OF REHOBOTH, 1642-1896 [Providence, 1897], p. 917).

You are right, the town minister [Congregationalist] Rev. Thacher baptized some but not all of the kids ("Goodman Tiffany's children Ebenezer & James & Thomas & Hezekiah") 6 Nov. 1681 (Teele's Hist. of Milton, p. 647). There were several others then living (William, ae. 9; Consider, ae. 6; Ephraim, ae. almost 4; and [if she was then alive] Elizabeth ae. 1). The baptismal status of the younger kids baffles me, since Congregationalists then and now practice infant baptism. (God knows what a bunch of apparently Congregationalist Tiffanys did for church arrangements in the Baptist town of Swansea; will have to check in Worthley's book on Mass. Cong. churches). Perhaps the Tiffanys had already moved or were in process, and the younger ones were at home with Mom at the new place? I understand however that Teele published Rev. Thacher's diary only in extract and it would be interesting to see if the real thing contains any more.

Also, the date on which Rev. Thacher arranged with Humphrey to teach James was 21 Oct. 1680, not sometime in 1681 (Teele, p. 644). Beware the siren call to quote from memory... :)

Finally here is the actual date and citation (27 March "1682," Plymouth COLONY Deeds 5:253-54) for the deed young Ebenezer witnessed. This date could be 1682 or just possibly 1682/3, although double-dating was only supposed to last 1 January-25 March (Lady Day, the Feast of the Annunciation), a holdover from the medieval church calendar practiced until 1752. Said deed was executed two days after the cutoff, so if it was indeed 1682 and not 1683, that could indicate a birth by ca. 1661 rather than by ca. 1662. (As a typical early Tiffany, he couldn't do things at an unambiguous time of year. Oh nooooo.)

Tiffanys in deeds of Plymouth COUNTY (to 1799) are mainly limited to Recompense3 Tiffany (Thomas2, Humphrey1) (one in vol. 31, another in vol. 32) and his heirs (by 1786, flung across various unrecorded areas of New England, which makes said deeds even sweeter) (65:39 and several pp. following, 66:125). Ebenezer and James appear prolifically in Bristol Co. Deeds, but much to my frustration (since Ebenezer is my ancestor) nowhere the wonderful quitclaim that identifies a wife.

Also peculiar is our inability to determine the origins of more early wives given the unusual names of some Tiffanys (e.g. Recompense, used only among descendants of Thomas2 and Hannah [----] Tiffany; the name appears first at Dorchester [Milton's mother town] in 1639 with the birth of Recompense Osborne, later of Long Island, and also in some branches of the Wadsworth family with no obvious links to the Osbornes, or to Mrs. Hannah Tiffany. Don't assume anything from this -- people of every age are notorious for copying cool names from the neighbors.

The second-generation Tiffany men certainly made a habit of marrying women with no last name, but they were simply following in the tradition of dear old Dad -- and Grandad, if you count Henry.

Thank you for the good ideas, and have a great weekend. Julie

Humphrey's first child was Ebenezer (2) and was born in Rehoboth, MA, in 1663. His second son James (2) was born in Milton, MA, in 1666. Humphrey Tiffany was listed as "Umphrey Tifiny" on the Milton, Massachusetts Tax List of 1678. Humphrey and his wife, Elizabeth, were Thanksgiving dinner guests, among others, of the Rev. Peter Thatcher on 25 November 1680 at the Rev. Thatcher's home in Milton, MA. On 6 Nov. 1681, Rev. Thatcher baptized Humphrey's sons Thomas (2) [age 13], Hezehiah (2) [age 11], Ebenezer (2) [age 18], and James (2) [age 15]. (from the Journal of Rev. Peter Thatcher, Appendix B, The History of Milton, Mass. 1640 to 1887, edited by A. K. Teele.) Humphrey's daughter Sarah (2) was born on 6 July 1683 in Swansea, MA. So following the thread, Humphrey must have left Rehoboth, MA, between 1663 and 1666, lived in Milton for some 18 years, and then returned to Rehoboth (Swansea was then part of Rehoboth) circa 1682. Does this help the puzzle any?

Whoops, in that list of young Tiffanys baptized at Milton 1681 by Rev. Peter Thacher, I inadvertently left out William Tiffany, b. at Milton 1672 and duly noted in that town's VRs, and last heard of in New Shoreham (Block Island) town records in 1695, as someone on the list of men required to kill their quota of crows. Rev. Thacher did indeed baptize William, and he belongs between Hezekiah (1670-1685) and Consider (1675-1707/8).

I've long wondered if Hezekiah, who drowned in the Swanzey River 4 Dec. 1685 "near Night," might have been the boy "was holding the Cloak" over Frances Low (Anthony Low's daughter, whom Humphrey was escorting to her father in Boston, and who was killed with him), according to Sewall's account of the lightning strike (which I suppose he heard from Anthony Low); this unnamed boy being "Stounded [i.e. dazed or stunned] but not killed"? Many of us here in New England have been caught suddenly in similar midsummer weather, when a really violent storm blows up out of nowhere and people (instantly soaked) are driven to the nearest shelter. In this case, with disastrous results, it was indeed that wide-branching, lone tree they were all huddling under, a mile and a half past Billings' farm, on the road from Swansea to Boston. (Now again, Hezekiah could have drowned simply due to shortcutting across a stretch of ice that LOOKED solid on a cold raw day, which 4 December is apt to be in any century.) 1685 must have been a rotten year in the Tiffany family and the survivors must have been both sad and glad to see it end.

Some years ago I read a most interesting work, A MATCH TO THE HEART by the naturalist Gretel Ehrlich, which chronicles the author's own near-death and recovery from being hit by lightning on a Western ranch. Apparently the electrical violence of a lightning strike can do hidden damage to the electromagnetic timing of the heart/nervous system and lightning survivors often die within a few months, with the cause not suspected due to the delay.

There are two "Tiffany" Books of note.
Nelson Otis Tiffanys; The Tiffanys of America, a nice volume, but filled with inaccuracies appears on the used market occasionally and sell for $100 + depending on condition. I have seen it as a reprint(or Photocopy) but not lately.
Ellla Wright Tiffany produced a thin volume deals with the Humphry, Ephraim, Consider, Consider branch of Hartland CT. It is accurate, and is available in reprint for about $20.00 from Tuttle Books in VT. www.Tuttlebooks.Com
I own Both and will do limited lookups for anyone interested, but please understand, these volumes barely scratch the surface of the family history. I cannot copy pages as both of the books are the orig. and are very fragile, being a century old

In Reply to: When Humphrey Immigrated by Sarah Haug of 614

There is no proof that any of the William Dodges of early New England were the same man who is supposed (on what evidence? do we have an actual church register?) to have been Humphrey Tiffany's stepfather. No marriage for Humphrey Tiffany is found in Salem vital records and there are no deeds or similar records linking him there.

There is no EVIDENCE that Humphrey Tiffany was in New England much before his appearance at Rehoboth in (I believe) 1663. A number of people, not confined to diehard Puritans, found New England an attractive destination given the fall in 1660 of the Puritan administration and the King's return. Detailed work in original, possibly not-yet-microfilmed, records in England (such as London tradesmen's organization records, etc.) will most likely be needed to find more about Humphrey's early life. Good luck to all of us!

I've started doing some family genealogy. My grandfather, John Mason TIFFANY, died in recent years. I'm just getting to his papers. Among them is a bundle of Tiffany stuff.

I have been researching other parts of his family (Shepard, Carter, Hotchkiss, Paine, Brewster), but am new to the TIFFANY line.

Can anyone corroborate the following information? Does it sound right to you? The notes I have seem quite thorough. I won't jot down everything I have because of space considerations. However, there is no documentation, so I have no idea where this info came from or whether it is accurate. I only know it was compiled in 1928.

Also, if anyone would like more info about what I have, please just let me know!

1. Squire Humphrey
2. Consider
3. Consider
4. Ephraim
5. Joel
6. Joel
7. George Steele
8. John Mason
9. Joan Frances Tiffany (my mother)

1. SQUIRE HUMPHREY Tiffany and his wife Elizabeth (Squire Humphrey died, 1685)
Lists their 6 children.

*The story from the diary of Samuel Sewell is included (with a citation) about Mistress, Lou, the lightening, etc.

2. CONSIDER was twice married. Name of first wife is not known. He married, second, in Lyme, CT, 23 Jan 1753, Mary DAVIS. Children by first marriage:

a. CONSIDER (see below #3)
b. Daniel
c. Samuel

(b. Lyme CT, 15 Mar 1730; d. 19 June 1796) married in Lyme CT, Sarah WILDER (b. Lyme CT,
13 Aug 1738; d. Hartland CT, 7 Nov 1818). They had 6 children:
a. Jemima
b. EPHRAIM (see below #4)
c. Dorothy
d. Levi
e. Consider
f. Betsy Wilder

Note: I have in writing--by my grandfather's older brother--an amusing reference about Consider's loyalty to the King during the Revolutionary War, and how he was marooned on his farm by his neighbors. When the war was over he was told he could leave the farm, and he said, "Damned if I will!" and stayed there until his death.

4. EPHRAIM married at Hartland CT, 27 Feb 1783, Anna HARGAR (b. 1758; d. Barkhamstead CT, 17 Dec 1824). They had eight children:
a. Timothy
b. JOEL (see below #5)
c. Sally
d. Ephraim
e. Philomen
f. Russell
g & h. daughters who died young

5. JOEL married in Barkhampstead CT 1804-05, Hannah WILDER (b. Barkhamstead CT, 18 Jan. 1783; d. there 20 Nov. 1853 (Litchfield Co.). They had 8 children:

a. Anna (married Osmund Case)
b. Henry
c. Elijah
d. JOEL (see below #6)
e. James
f. William
g. Anna Wallace
h. Hannah

6. JOEL (b. 6 Sep 1811) married first, Oct 1834, Cornelia Maria Tyron (b. Bethlehem CT, 4 Mar 1812; d. Painesville OH, 23 Feb. 1859). There were 6 [girl] children from this marriage (I won't list here).

Married, second, in Rochester, 22 Mar, 1860, Margaret MASON (b. 1 Aug. 1840; d. 1927). [note: I have a bunch of info about Margaret Mason's lineage). By this marriage there were 4 children.

Joel Tiffany attended Amherst College, and later practiced law in Medina OH. He knew George Steele of Painesville OH, and named his youngest son for him. I have more info on the following children, but will not include here, except for my forebear.

a. Frances Lord
b. Leon J. Tiffany
c. Wilder Mason

Note: I also have a fair amount of information about this Joel Tiffany. He was an a known writer, leading abolitionist attorney and author, and inventor, and quite involved with the early Republican party.

7. GEORGE STEELE (b. 6 May 1878; m. 31 Mar 1895 to Helen Emily CARTER (b. 7 Mar 1876 at Oberlin OH). They had 5 children:
a. Ned Carter Tiffany
b. George Steele Jr.
c. Helen Van Rennsselaer
e. David Hollis

8. JOHN MASON (b. 16 Jan. 1907 in Summit NJ; d. Aug 1995 in Winston-Salem NC) married 2 Feb 1929, in Summit NJ, to Margaret Virginia MELLON (b. 28 Jan. 1904 in Patton PA, d. 20 May 1994 in Winston-Salem NC).

Message: It was common for Puritans [Humphrey Tiffany was a Puritan, born in England &
moved to Massachusetts Bay Colony about 1660] to use names like: Silent, Deliverance, & Love for females, and Comfort, Consider, Recompense, & Content for males; all of these names are ones that various Tiffanys had back then [along with many other Puritans. God knows what their nicknames were.

The father of Charles Lewis Tiffany, [who was Louis Comfort's father] was called Comfort. Comfort was born Oct. 24, 1758 in Attleboro, MA, & died June 2, 1759. Comfort's father was Ebenezer Tiffany, son of James, son of James, son of Humphrey.

Louis Comfort Tiffany was the third child of Charles Lewis Tifany, and the second male. His older brother was called Charles Lewis Tiffany. Louis Comfort Tiffany, by his second wife, had a son called Louis Comfort, who died unmarried.

TIFFANY, Louis Comfort, artist, was born in New York city, Feb. 18, 1848; son of Charles Lewis
and Harriet Olivia (Young) Tiffany; grandson of Comfort and Chloe (Draper) Tiffany, and of
Ebenezer and Anna (Burnett) Young, and a descendant of "Squire" Humphrey Tiffany, who came
to this country from England about 1060 and settled in Massachusetts. He studied art in New York
under George Inness and Samuel Coleman, and in Paris under Leon Bailly. He painted in oil and
water-colors, making a specialty of Oriental scenes. His principal canvases are: The Dock Scene
(1869); Street Scene in Tangiers (1876); Study of Quimper, Brittany (1877); Duane Street, New York(1878); the Cobblers at Boufarick (1888); Feeding the Flamingoes (1888); Market Day at Nuremberg(1892). His other important art works include the Tiffany Chapel exhibited at the Columbian exposition, Chicago, 1893, which was placed in the crypt of the New York Cathedral of St. John the Divine; and the electric fountain at the Pan-American exposition, Buffalo, N.Y., 1901. He discovered a new formula for making decorative glass, known as Tiffany Fertile glass. In 1879 he established a decorative and art glassware business known as the Tiffany Glass and Decorating
company, of which he was president and art director, and which became the leading American
house in the manufacture of decorative window and other church decorations. He established and
controlled the Tiffany Furnaces at Corona, L.I., and he became art director of the Allied Arts
company; 2d vice-president and trustee of Tiffany & Company; was elected an associate member
of the National Academy of Design in 1871 and academician in 1880; a member of the Society of
American Artists; the American Water Color society; the New York Society of Fine Arts; the
Architectural League; a member of Société Nationale des Beaux Arts; a member of the Imperial
Society of Fine Arts, Tokio, Japan. He received a gold medal and decoration of chevalier of the

The earliest TIFFANY mentioned in colonial history is Squire Humphrey TIFFANY, who went to
Massachusetts Bay Colony about 1660. In the records of the ancient town of Rehoboth, ?Baylis
History of New Plymouth? Volume I, page 209, under the date of 22d January, 1663, it states
?Humphrey TIFFANY permitted to be a Sojourner and to buy or hire.? At this date he became a
citizen of the Town and was a Justice of the Peace. He was killed by a stroke of lightning on 15th
July, 1685, while on the way to Boston with a party of friends. The following quaint lines have
recorded the event: ?Humphrey Tiffany and Mistress Lowe, by a stroke of lightning into eternity
did go.? His wife was Elizabeth (surname not given). The four great branches of the family whose
descent is unquestioned, are his four sons.

According to the Tiffanys of America - History and Genealoby published by Nelson Otis Tiffany for and the in the interest of Charles Lewis Tiffany of New York City and the of the Tiffany Family - input on May 28, 2001.


Squire Humphrey is the earliest Tiffany mentioned in Colonial History and he is undoubtedly the ancestor of the majority of Tiffanys in America. The following notes copied from reliable records seem to fix the date when be became a citizen of the town of Rehoboth, Mass. (which town was incorporated in 1645, and contained the present towns fo Seekonk, Rehoboth, Attleboro, parts of Swansea, Mass., and Pawtucket, R.I.). The birth of a daughter, Sarah July 6, 1683; his death by lightning; the administration of his estate by wife Elizabeth; the death of his son, Hezekiah, the same year by drowning; ending with a record from the vital records of Rehoboth, which affirm his heirs in 1689 to be proprietors not inhabitants of property in Rehoboth, Mass.

Notes of Humphrey Tiffany --

Records of Ancient Rehoboth, History of New Plymouth, by Baylis, Vol I page 209. Jan 22, 1663, Humphrey Tiffany permitted to be a sojourner and to buy and hire.

the town o'Rehoboth, Mass., was incorporated 1645 and contained the towns of Seekonk, Rehoboth, Attleboro, Swansea, Mass., and Pawtucket, RI.

Att the General Court holden att Plymouth the first day of March, Anno Dorn 1663, Humphrey Tiffany made a complaint against an Indian for abuse received.

Humphrey Tiffany, Rehoboth, 1663, by wife Elizabeth had Sarah born July 6, 1683, and was an inhabitant of Dover for some time but killed July 15, 1685, on the journey between Swanzey and Boston by a stroke of lightning. -- Savage

From Mass. Historical Society, Vol 14., page 125, July 15, 1685, Humphrey Tiffany and Frances Low Travelling betwix Swanswey an Boston were slain with lightning.

Plymouth Colony Records, Vol 6, page 175. Att a General Court of hi Majtie att Plymouth, Oct, 27, 1685, administration is granted by this court to Elizabeth, the relict of Humphrey Tiffany deceased, on all the goods and chattles of sd., Tiffeney she bringing in true inventory there of and giving bond with two sufficient sureties for her administering according to law. Major John Walley is ordered the Court to give ye oath to the inventory of sd. Tiffeney and to deliver her the letter of administration granted by the Court, her having given a bond as afore sd.

Hezekiah, the son of Humprey Tiffinee and of Elizabeth his wife, was drowned in Swansey River on the 4th of December near night, anno 1685. From the Town records of Swansea, Mass., furnished by town clerk Henry O. Wood.

From the Vital Records of Rehoboth, page 917, Humphrey Tiffany's heirs are quoted as proprietors not inhabitants, Feb 7, 1689, of property in Rehoboth.

The emigration of the sons of Humphrey Tiffany was for a time limitied to short distances. We hear of James at Attleboro, Mass., 1693; Thomas his brother, first at Bristol, the at Ashford; Ebenezer another brother at Barrington, RI; Consider and Ephraim seem to have found their way to the town of New Shoreham, which town was admitted to the Colony as Block Island, May 4, 1664. Here per New Shoreham records funished by town clerk of New Shoreham -- Consider Tiffany and Abigail Niles were married and had children. Here also his brother Ephraim (of whose descendants this history deals), and wife Leshia, had issue.

Generation Second:

Descent: Humphrey (1), Ephraim (2)

Ephraim (2), son of Humphrey (1), and Elizabeth Tiffany m. Leshia -- and had issue, b. in New Shoreham, Block Island. 1. Samuel (3), b. April 7, 1701 2. Consider (3), b. April 28, 1703. 3. Humphrey (3), b. February 7, 1706. Ephraim (2) and his brother, Consider (2) bought a large tract of land in Lyme, Conn., June 11, 1701. Consider (2) Moved to LYme and made a number of transfers of real estate from time to time. Ephraim did not settle in Lyme till late in 1706 or the first of 1707, judging from an agreement between him and his partners, Ball and Banning. For a long time I find no transfers in his name but he was living in Lyme, Connecticutt, in 1724 and dided there previous to 1734. Was living in 1732.
