    Notes 
    • Robert Wilkinson, Robert Wilkinson Family, Ancestry World Tree:
      The famous "Winthrop Fleet" was a joint venture of John Winthrop & Sir John Saltonstall consisting of 17 ships which came left Yarmouth, Norfolk, Eng, in April 1630. Winthrop's ship was the "Arabella." His "Journal" lists those who had agreed that Feb to sail with him. Number 25 was JONAS WEED. The "Arabella" stopped briefly on the Isle of Wight to be joined by three companion ships, and resumed sailing 8 Apr. They arrived at Salem on 12 June, then sailed on to Watertown where they est a church 28 July with Saltonstall. Jonas was one of the 40 men who signed original covenant. This was the 4th settlement in the colony after Salem, Charlestown, and Dorchester. Boston had not yet been founded. Jonas was one of 144 to become Freeman of Mass. Bay Colony 18 May 1631. As frequently happened in the colonies, a rift developed within the church at Watertown. On 4 Sept 1634 a group of dissidents petitioned the court for the colony for permission to move to Pyquag - Wethersfield - an old Indian settlement on the Conn River. The petition was granted 6 May 1635. Three wks later Jonas and four others founded Wethersfield, as
      documented in " THE PUBLIC RECORDS OF THE COLONY OF CONNECTICUT, 1636-1635" v 2, by J. Hammond Trumbull: " At a corte holden at Newtown [Hartford], 26 April 1636. Whereas there was a dismission, granted by the C[hurch] of Watertown in Massachusetts, dated 29th of Ma last to Andrew Warde, Jo: Sherman, Jo: Strickland, Rob'te Coo [Coe], & Jonas Weede, w'th intent to forme a newe a Ch[urch] Conven'nte in this River of Connectecott, the saide p'rties have soe
      accordingly done w'th the publicke allowance of the rest of the members of the saide Churches, as by certificate nowe pr'duced app[ea]rs. It is therefore in this present Cort ratified & confirmed, they pr'missing shortlie publicquely to renewe the [said] Coven'nt uppon notice to the rest of the Churches." Jonas' house appeared on a 1640 map of Wethersfield on northern end of High St. on the eastern side. Rev Richard Denton came to Wethersfield in 1637. In 1641 he led a group of Wethersfield families to settle Stamford, Conn. In Nov or Dec 1642, Stamford granted Jonas "Weede" a home lot and other lands, listing him as a freeholder. Thus, Jonas was a founder of Watertown and Wethersfield, and a settler of Stamford in its second year of existence. The only deed remaining for Jonas is dated 14 Aug 1671 in which he gave to his son Jonas "a certaine p'sell of meadow in Rocky neck, containing two acres & three roods, more or less...Also, four acres of my ground now in tillage in ye East-field...Also my home lott I now live upon, with ye housing
      thereupon, to have & possess imediatly after ye decease of me & my wife,...except ye p'te granted unto my son Daniel at ye upper end of ye lot, contayning a quarter of an acre or yrabouts." It was signed by Jonas, Sr, and witnessed by John Holly and Daniel Weed. Jonas' will is dated 26 Nov 1672, and written in the third person. He assigned Mary and sons Jonas and Daniel to administer his estate. Jonas left Mary a life interest in his house and home lot, and two acres each of meadow and upland. Of his personal estate, she was to receive "her bed with all belonging to it; And his great bible and his warming pan, and more to the vallu of Twenty pounds to take out of his Estate in what Shee doth desire." John was to receive 5 pounds and two acres of meadow; Daniel was to have land or property worth 10 pds; Jonas 1 pd, and Samuel 5 shillings. Jonas' daughter Mary, wife of George Abbot, was to receive 30 shillings; Dorcas, wife of James Wright, 10 shillings; Elizabeth 5 pds; Hannah, wife of Benjamin Hait, 10 pds; and "unto his daughter Sarah, the Sum of Five Shillings, And in case Shee doe returne agayne to the Truth, then he doth by will give unto her the Sum of five pounds." It is believed Sarah may have joined the Quaker
      movement.

      Birth is speculative, the Great Migration does not use it, although it is logical. A Jonas Weed was baptized in the paristh church in Chelveston, son of Jonas Weed and Mary Jane Davidson of Stanwick, Northhamptonshire in the East Anglia area. John Winthrop noted in his medical journal in 1668 that Jonas was 70 years of age. Jonas came to Massachusetts in 1630 with Sir Richard Saltonstall and Governor Winthrop in 1630 on the Arabella. The Arabella left most of its passengers in Salem but Jonas moved on to Watertown, Massachusetts, where he was a member of the church there. He was dismissed from that church to form a new church at Wethersfield 29 March 1636. He became a freeman 18 March 1631. In 1642, he received a grand of land in Stamford. His will was dated 26 November 1672 and proved 5 June 1676. He signed his will which left the house, and the use of the houselot with two acres of meadow to his wife Mary plus £20 in moveables including his "Great Bible". He left property to his sons, John, Daniel, Jonas and daughters, Mary Abbot, wife of George Abbot, Dorcas, wife of James Write, his son Samuell, and to John Rockwell and to his daughter Elizabeth and daughter Sarah. Jonas may have been married twice.

      JONAS-1 WEED

      Jonas Weed, the immigrant ancestor, was generally thought to have been born in England around 1610, perhaps in Stanwick, Northampton. His parentage was unknown, although it was thought he might have been the son of Jonas Weed and Mary Jane Davidson. Recent research, however, has revealed that he was most likely the Jonas Weed who was baptized on 20 February 1597 in Chelveston, Northamptonshire; Jonas was the son of John Weed and his wife.

      The family were dissenters in the Chelveston Church, and so moved to nearby Stanwick in order to worship. Jonas was probably living in Stanwick when the decision was made to emigrate.

      Jonas is said to have come to New England with the Winthrop fleet in 1630 in the flagship Arabella with Sir Richard Saltonstall, which sailed on 29 March from Great Yarmouth and landed at Salem on 13 June; while it has not been proven with any certainty that he was aboard that particular ship, it is known that he came with that fleet. He settled originally in Watertown, Massachusetts Bay Colony, as early as 18 May 1631 when he was made a freeman. He was one of the forty men who signed the covennant establishing the church.

      He was apparently not entirely happy with his new home, however, because on 14 September 1634 he and five others -- including Andrew Ward -- petitioned the General Court for permission to remove to the south to found their own settlement. He was probably dissatisfied with the conservative forces irunning the church. The petition was granted on 6 May 1635 and the group was dismissed from the Watertown church to remove to Connecticut on 29 May of that year. They removed to what became Wethersfield, Hartford County, Connecticut, where Jonas was one of the very first settlers. On 26 April 1636, the records of the Court in Hartford contain the following:

      Whereas there was a dismission granted by the Church of Watertown in Massachusetts, dated 29 March last, to Andrew Ward, Jo: Sherman, Jo: Strickland, Robte Coo, Robte Reynolds & Jonas Weede, wth intent to form a newe Ch: Covennte in the River of Connecticut, the saide prties hase soe accordingly done with the publicke allowance of the rest of the members of the saids Churches, as by certificate nowe produced apprs. It is therefore, in the prsent Cort, ratified & confirmed, they prmising shortlie and publiquely to renewe the saide Covenant uppon notice to the rest of the Churches.

      His homelot was located at the head of High Street, to the east of the Great Meadow. It was bounded on the north by the way to the harbor, and another highway leading to the Great Meadow on the south; it contained seven acres in all. He owned an additional twenty-four acres in the Farthest West Field, and appears to have had land in an area called the "Point," between the cove and the river. His estate was appraised at £154.10.00. In the Wethersfield land inventory of 25 April 1641, Jonas is listed as having eight parcels of land: seven acres "whereon his house standeth;" three acres in the Great Meadow; two acres in the Beaver Meadow; ten acres of dry swamp; four acres in the Island; two acres and three roods in Pennywise; [thirty?] acres in the West Field; and twelve acres in the West Field.

      Around 1634 or 1635, probably but not certainly in Wethersfield, he married MARY ------ ; nothing more is currently known about her origins. They had at least ten children (not necessarily in order):

      i Mary b. 1639 m. George Abbot
      ii John b. m. (1) Joanna Wescott
      m. (2) Mary ------
      iii Dorcas b.c. m. James Wright
      iv Daniel b. m. Ruth ------
      + v Jonas b. m. Bethia Holly
      vi Elizabeth b.c. m. John Rockwell
      vii Sarah b. m. (1) David Waterbury
      m. (2) Benjamin Ferris
      viii Hannah b.c. m. Benjamin Hoyt
      ix Samuel b.c. m. Mary ------
      x Unnamed Child b. d. 15 July 1656

      He served as a juror in 1639. Around 1640, he had begun to consider moving; the reason for the move was once again church-related. As Mather noted "when the votes [of the church's governing board] were taken there were four orthodox conservatives and three liberals [including Jonas]. So the minister and liberals moved to Stamford." By late 1641 he had settled in Stamford, Fairfield County, Connecticut, where he was also one of the original settlers. He had a land grant there -- "a house and pasture land in the field to be inclosed" -- in November 1642, and lived on the north corner of River Street and the road to the mill.

      He was one of the "four pillars" of the Wethersfield church who was responsible for setting up the church in Stamford. Jonas, Andrew Ward, Robert Coe, and Rev. Richard Denton were four of the seven men who constituted the governing board of the Wethersfield church. Although he was a firm believer in his religion, not all of the members of his family followed his example. Apparently his daughter Sarah turned her back on the church; in his will he gave her the smallest bequest of any of his children -- just five shillings -- but promised her an additional £5 "in case shee doe returne agayne to the Truth."

      In April 1647, Jonas was involved in a case before the General Court in which he accused an Indian servant of stealing wine from his house:

      At a Courte at Stamford when ye Governor and Capteayn Ashwood was members at ye Courte, an action by Jonas Weed, Plaintiffe, agt. Wilyam, a captive Indian servant to Rich. Crabb, defendants. Decleare of ye Plaintiffe, ye sayd William on a Sabbath Day stowll from me out of my house, in meeting time, one cloth gown, and one staffe gun, and some wampon, and some other things.
      Ye sayd Indian confesseth all ye things; Goodman Weed compleayns agst Goodman Crabb for saying, "ye goodman Weed his daughter might drunks upe ye sack and hid ye things: Goodman Crabb denies ye charge.
      Courts sentenc ye sayd Indian shall be whiped at ye pleasure of ye Courte, and shall be kept close prisoner till he may be sent out of ye countray, and to be sold as a slaev.

      In October 1671, he entered into the following agreement:

      Witness these presents yt I Jonas Weed Sr. of Stamford doe hereby give unto my son Jonas Jr. a certain psell of meadow in Rocky Neck two acres more or less. Also four acres of my ground now in tillage on ye Eastfield. Also my home lot I now live upon, with ye housing thereupon to have and posess immediately after ye decease of me and my wife. He, ye said Jonas Wed Jr. paying five pounds to ye estate of me, ye aforesaid Jonas Weed -- except ye pt granted to my son Daniel at ye upper end of ye lot, a quarter of an acre.
      In witness of ye truth I have caused this deed of gift to be made, and hereto I set my hand in Stamford this 14th day 8th month Anno 1671.

      He died in Stamford in 1676, probably in the first week of June when his estate was inventoried. His will, written at Stratford on 26 November 1672, provided:

      The Last Will and testament of Jonas Weed Sr who first doth give up his soul to his Lord Jesus Christ and his Body to an honorable burial and for his outward estate he doth as follows: he doth give and bequeath unto his wife Mary Weed the house she now lives in and the use of the homlot with two acres of meadow and two acres of upland lying in the east field during her life time: And [words smudged] all belonging to it: And his [line smudged] pan: and more to [line smudged] of his estate[line smudged].
      2ly he doth give and bequeath to his eldest Sonn John Weed Two Acres of Meadowe lying in Rock creek and more to the vallu of five pounds.
      3ly he doth give unto his Sonn David Weed the full and Just sum of Ten pounds: for the Said Ten pounds he is to have that peece of Meadow Lying in the east field in that neck comonly called Mr [Lands?] neck if he with the rest doe agree in the [words smudged] they may yf not Soe much: then he is to have the remainder of my other things:
      4ly he doth give unto his Sonn Jonas Weed the Sum of one pounds.
      5ly he doth give unto his daughter Mary Abbot the wife of Georg Abbot the Sum of Thirty Shillings.
      6ly he doth give to his daughter Dorcas: the wife of James wright the sum ten shillings.
      7ly he doth give unto his Sonn Samuel the Sum of Twenty pounds.
      8ly he doth give unto John Rockwill the sum of five shillings and doth leave the vallu of five pounds in Daniels hand for Elizabeth.
      9ly he doth give to his daughter Sarah the Sum of five shillings: And in case shee doe returne agayne to the Truth then he doth by will give unto her the Sum of five pounds.
      10ly he doth give unto his daughter Hannah Benj: Hoits wife the Sum of Ten pound.
      Moreover it is his will that yf his estate doth not amount unto ye Just Sum as above they shallshare out of the above proportionably: And yf his estate [?] [?] to [?] the Sum as above then it is his will they shall each and every of them advance proportionably to what [?] of them have received : Also he doth by will Impower his wife Mary Weed and his Sonn Daniel and his Sonn Jonas Weed to Administer upon his Estate acording to [will?].

      His estate was inventoried on 7 June 1676, and included in part: "bedding, a bedsted, more bedding, another bedsted, a bible, a warming pan, wooden ware, earthen ware, a frying pan, candlestick, Iron pot, fire pan and tongs, brass and copper, a saw, cotton wool, twelve bushels of indian corn, flax, yarn, two cows, and a yearling." His real estate alone totaled £58 including 4 acres of meadow, £16; 6 acres of upland, £18; 2 acres of meadow, £8; one half Shiphan dividend of land, £6; Rocky neck last dividend, £2; waste land in Rocky Neck, £0.20.00; and one and a half acres of meadow "next Mr. Lawes in the East Field," £7. The total value was the inventoried goods was £116.9.06.

      Mary died shortly before 10 March 1689/90, when the following inventory of her estate was prepared:

      Impr one fether bed boulster and pillow with pillowbeers, one rugg foure blankets and curtaines, one paire [?bridg] sheets weaveing cloth, three sheets two towels four napkins, A remnant of Linsywools silke hankeshev, gloves linen weaveing cloth, one Iron pott tongs grediron Iron hooks potts, two old ketles brass skelet old warming pan, old puter Earthen ware trays [?] trenchers, two pailes & bailers pair sheets chaires cushens, one old barell paire specticles & case, old cubbard & table two pound half butter, old basket smothing Iron and paire bellows, one cow one sheep old tubb, one old blanket two bags.

      The total was £23.07.03; it is noteworthy that no real estate is included in the inventory. In the estate papers of Robert Stewart of Norwalk dated 1688, there is a document on the reverse of which is an account of the estate of Mary, dated 10 March 1689/90, in which Benjamin Hoyt, Daniel Weed, and Jonas Weed Jr. claim expenses.


      BIOGRAPHY: "Jonas Weed was probably from Yorkshire, England. He came to America on the Arbella in 1630. He was a freeman in Watertown, Mass., in 1631 and then went to Wethersfield, Ct in 1635. He was in Stamford in 1642 and lived on the north corner of the road to the mill and "River Street." His son Jonas was called "of Norton Corners," and his son John's oldest son was known as Jonas Weed, shoemaker. His son Samuel went to Bedford, NY about 1677, to Bedford from 1680 to 1685, and then returned to Stamford. The name Weed is often confused with Wood in reading these early records because of the way they formed their e's." From The Early Settlement of Stamford... (see sources), p 198. [jj 5/2000]


      Although there is no documented proof, numerous references to the Weed family state that Jonas was the son of Jonas Weed and Mary Jane Davidson of Stanwick, Northhamptonshire in England's East Anglia area and that he was born about 1606. Information from another Weed researcher, citing baptismal records of the parish church for Chelveston in Northhamptonshire at the Public Records Office in Northampton, notes the following baptisms:
      Elizabeth Weed, daughter of John Weed, baptised 10 October 1587
      Leonard Weed, son of John Weed, baptised 19 January 1589
      Ann Weed, daughter of John Weed, baptised 25 May 1593
      George Weed, son of John Weed, baptised 2 February 1596
      Jonas Weed, son of John Weed, baptised 20 February 1597
      Richard Weed, son of John Weed, baptised 1 June 1601


      This Jonas Weed, baptised in 1597, seems to be the right age to be the Jonas Weed of Stamford noted by John Winthrop in his medical journal in 1668 as being 70 years old.

      Jonas came to the Massachusetts Bay Colony in the fleet with Sir Richard Saltonstall and Governor Winthrop in 1630. In all, seventeen ships arrived in New England from England that year. The Arbella was one of four in this Winthrop fleet, the others being the Jewel, the Ambrose, and the Talbot. Jonas, and other members of this Puritan group, originally set sail on March 29 of that year and, after some difficulities, finally set sail from Yarmouth at the Isle of Wight and the Arbella reached Massachusetts on June 12, 1630. The Jewell arrived the following day; the Ambrose arrived on June 18; and the Talbot arrived on July 2.

      The Arbella left most of its passengers at Salem but Jonas Weed moved on Watertown, MA. It was here that Jonas settled and where he was made a freeman on 18 May 1631. He did not settle long in Watertown, however, as in 1635 he was a first settler in Wethersfield, CT, and later was one of the founders of Stamford, CT in 1641.

      In May of 1635 he was one of six dismissed from the Watertown Church to form a new church on the Connecticut River at Wethersfield. Colonial records note than at a Court held at Newton on April 26, 1636:

      "Whereas there was a dismission granted by the Church of Watertown in Massachusetts dated 29th of Ma[ ] last to Andrew Ward, Jo: Sherman, Jo: Strickland, Rob'te Coo, Rob'te Reynolds & Jonas Weede, wth intent to forme a newe Ch: Covennte in this River of Connecticut, the sade prties hase soe accordingly done with the publicke allowance of the rest of the members of the saide Churches, as by certificate nowe prduced apprs. It is therefore, in this prsent Cort, ratified & confirmined, they prmising shortlie and publiquely to renewe the saide Covenant vppon notice to the rest of the Churches."


      It was in Wethersfield, in 1637, that Jonas married his wife, Mary. Different sources have Jonas' wife as Mary Hoyt and others as Mary Scofield. Neither, however, have been proven. In 1639, Wethersfield along with Windsor and Suckiang (the present day Hartford) joined together to form the Connecticut Colony, and, in that same year, Jonas is listed as a Juror in Wethersfield. Also, Wethersfield was the birthplace of the first three children of Jonas and Mary: Elizabeth, Mary and Dorcas. Jonas Weed's home in Wethersfield was at the extreme northern end of the Eastern side of the present High Street. It's position is indicated by his name on the 1640 map of the town in "The History of Ancient Wethersfield."

      In about 1641, Jonas and his family were among the families to found Stamford, CT. Jonas and Mary remained in Stamford and it was here that their remaining six children were born.

      His will, dated 26 November 1672, was inventoried on 7 November 1676. Mentioned in his will were: his wife Mary; eldest son John; son Daniel; son Jonas; daughter Mary, wife of George Abbot; daughter Dorcas, wife of James Wright; son Samuel; to John Rockwell, five shillings, and 5 pounds sterling in Daniel's hands for Elizabeth; daughter Sarah, "if she return to the truth"; daughter Hannah, wife of Benjamin Hoit. Executors of his will were wife Mary, and son John.

      The will, from the Fairfield Probate Records, is as follows:

      The Last Will and testament of Jonas Weed Sr who first doth give up his soul to his Lord Jesus Christ and his Body to an honorable burial and for his outward estate he doth as follows: he doth give and bequeath unto his wife Mary Weed the house she now lives in and the use of the homlot with two acres of meadow and two acres of upland lying in the east field during her lifetime: And [line smudged] all belonging to it: And his [line smudged] pan: and more to [line smudged] of his estate [line smudged].

      2ly he doth give and bequeath to his eldest Sonn John Weed Two Acres of Meadowe lying in Rock creek and more to the vallu of five pounds.

      3ly he doth give unto his Sonn David Weed the full and Just sum of Ten pounds: for the Said Ten pounds he is to give that peece of Meadowe Lying in the east field in that neck comonly called Mr [Lands?] neck if he with the rest doe agree in the [words smudged] thay may yf Soe much: then he is to have the remainder of my other things.

      4ly he doet give unto his Sonn Jonas Weed the Sum of one pounds.
