are no known children of this union.

 

2b) He married 2nd) Jane Curtis (WFT Est

1650/52) in Lyme, New London, CT Colony.

Jane is believed to be the daughter of John's

business partner Phillip Curtis. She was

born (WFT Est 1625/30) in England, and

died abt. 1668 in Lyme, New London,

CT Colony. John and Jane were married

a line of bold colored animation.

 

3) The descendants of John qualify for membership

in the IBSSG "International Black Sheep Society

of Genealogists" because of the following account;

John was married to his third wife; Mary HAND,

by Commissioner Thomas Miner of Stonington,

as recorded in his diary. Shortly after their marriage

they were found guilty of fornication "before

marriage" while she was still married to her

previous husband, Charles BARNES, and they

were fined L10 (ten pounds), which was a very high

fine for that period. (New London County Court

Records Vol 2, P 44).

5a) Recorded in: The Genealogy Of Connecticut,

Early Families Page 223; (John is thought to have

arrived in Boston from Scotland via Barbados about

1640) The 1st written record of John in America

appears in a legal document of William Aspinwall,

a Notary Public of Boston, MA. In this document,

dated 12 Jul 1647, John signed as witness for a

Power of Attorney for Thomas Bayes. He also bore

witness for Thomas Foster. In these records is also

an account dated 01 May 1648, between John Pease

and John Huntley, in regard to a load of fish, John

Huntley had shipped to Barbados.

 

5b) NOTE; Some believe John Huntley is the

brother of William Huntley who was a resident of

St. Phillip's Parish in Barbados. According to the

Smith Collection on West Indian Families, located

in the London Genealogical Society, there was a

William Huntley living in St. Philip's Parish,

Barbados. He was buried there 01 Aug 1679. He

had owned five acres of land and two slaves.

Barbados is in the Windward Islands of the

Caribbean Sea and claimed by the British Empire

in 1605. It has been under British rule ever since

that time. Cotton, molasses, rum, and sugar were

raised as the main exports of the island, and the

theory is that William raised cotton on his five

acres and traded it to John for fish.

 

5c) John Huntley is also recorded with his wife

first wife, Sarah, as living in Roxbury, Suffolk,

which is now a part of Boston. In 1649 Sarah

Huntley, along with other women of Boston,

signed a petition. At the time of Sarah's death

(believed to have been the result of Small Pox),

the couple lived in a house owned by Mr.

Hanniford. Recorded in the deposition of

John Pease, 02 Jul.1679: "29 or 30 years

ago, Mr. Huntley was Mr. Hanniford's

tenant in boston, and there Mr. Huntley's

wife died of small-pox."

 

5d) Recorded in Ipswich Quarterly Court Records;

Richard Smith makes deposition that John Huntley

was in Salem, MA at about 1650, being at the Iron

Works there.

6) Vital Records of the city of Boston, MA:

Records of John Elliot, Pastor of the 1st Church

of Roxbury, MA, 27th day of the 10th month,

1657; baptized Moses Huntley, Aaron Huntley Jr.,

& Elizabeth Huntley.

 

a line of bold colored animation.

 

7) Suffolk Co., MA Land Records; 27 Feb

1659 deeded land, house, and one acre, to

Phillip Curtis for L23 worth of cattle.

 

a line of bold colored animation.

 

8) It is unknown why John and his family left

Roxbury to move to Saybrook, New London,

CT Colony about 1661. It appears likely it was

for business reasons and possibly a partnership

with Richard Smith. On 12 Jul 1665 John

purchased two parcels of land and Richard

Smith sold him 71 acres of land when John

moved to Lyme, New London, CT Colony.

Shortly after that he purchased an additional

91 acres for which he paid one hundred

English pounds. John's cattle were earmarked

with a "one half-pen cut on the underside of

each ear, and a slit on the top of the near ear".

9) Lyme Town Records, Vol 1:30, 12 Jul 1665; JOHN

IS RECORDED *AS BEING AMONG THE FIRST

THIRTY SETTLERS OF LYME, NEW LONDON,

CT. He shared in THE FIRST DIVISION OF LAND.

It cost one hundred pounds per family to purchase

a share of the town, and John had 71 acres for his lot

plus twenty acres for his calf pasture at that time.

10) John is listed as a COOPER. The meadow

within it is bounded South by the land of William

Measurer; on the North by the commons, on the

West by \ the highway, and on the East by the

a line of bold colored animation.

 

15) John's Will is dated 16 Nov 1676, the same

day he died; "Being very sick and weak of body,

but of perfect memory, I give and bequeath my

soul to God that gave it, and my body to the

earth from whence it came, to be decently
