(Thanks to Cousin Joel Ettinger for sharing this research with us)

1) Recorded in; History of Ancient Wethersfield, CT".

2) Lewis appears on a list of "additional

settlers prior to 1641" in Wethersfield.

His name appears with a "?", which is

not defined. Also listed are Henry

Palmer and William Palmer. It

states that some of the names for

the first settlers are listed

in Bond's "History of Watertown",

MA P-29.

3) Lewis Jones is listed as

"Not a church member" P-161),

and as the son-in-law of Henry

Palmer P-281, from whom he

received land in 1659.

4) The settlers of Wethersfield,

CT came from Watertown, MA. there was

another Lewis Jones in Watertown, MA,

who some sources state was born in 1605.

This Lewis Jones was married to Anna Stone.

Question; Could the Lewis Jones born 1605,

be the father of Lewis Jones born 1635 "of

Wethersfield, CT"? The earlier Lewis Jones

does not appear to have a son named Lewis

Jones in other sources. Until someone

finds the Will belonging to Lewis Jones

of 1605, to check for a son names Lewis,

the mystery will remain.

5) According to Brockway Newsletter,

Winter 1990, P 4, research by Bill Reese,

Lewis was born about 1638, possibly in

Guilford, CT, "apparantely" the son of

Thomas and Mary JONES of Guilford. Joe

York's note; Stephen Brockway entered

Thomas and Mary Jones as the parents of

Lewis, and added his comment "conjecture".

No further explanation was given. (Joel

ETTINGER'S note; "I checked all indexes

for vital records in the Guilford, CT town

hall. there is no Lewis JONES in ANY vital

records index in this time period. Guilford

was settled in 1639, prior to that it was

inhabited only by Indians.) Some of the

old vital record books are in poor

condition; it is possible that some records

were illegible, and therefore could

not be indexed.

6) Recorded in the Genealogical Dictionary

of the First Settlers of New England, by

James Savage, 1977, Genealogicl Pub. Co., Vol

II, p 564 "Lewis was born c. 1638,

possibly in Guilford, Ct "apparently"

the son of Thomas and Mary

Jones of Guilford.

2) Recorded in "founders of Early

American Families, Emigrants From

Europe 1607-1657" by

3) Recorded in; "Palmer Families in

America, P 12" by Horace Wilbur Palmer.

\"Now in Mead's 'Ye Historied of Ye Town

of Greenwich,' Henry Palmer of

Wethersfield has been called the first

American ancestor of the Greenwich

Palmers, a distinction to which he is in

no way entitled and which conclusion is

incorrect. This Henry first appears in

Wethersfield as having a homestead on

Broad Street by 1640-41 next to

William Palmer, at about which time

he was married, his wife being named

Katherine. Four children are given on the

Wethersfield records for Henry, their

births being from 1643 to 1650.

This William Palmer of Wethersfield is

of a different family from Lieut. William

(see the family of william Palmer of

Westchester, NY). Henry appears on

the Wethersfield records up to 1665-6.

What became of him is not certain but he

evidently did not go to Greenwich as

there is no mention of his name on the

Greenwich records. We believe he went to

Newport, RI, as a Henry Palmer appeared

there in 1668. The statement in Mead's

history that he died in Greenwich in 1650

is certainly in error, for he was living in

Wethersfield at this time with wife

Katherine. Mead also says Henry married

a second wife, Judith Feake, by whom

he had 5 children; John, James, Judith

(Judah), William, and Joseph. Henry

never married Judith, for his wife

Katherine wa living with him in

Wethersfield at the very time

that Mead gives as the births of

these 5 children by Judith. The

error in this conclusion is due to

the fact that Henry of Wethersfield

had a son Ephraim and Lieut.

William and wife Judith also had

a son named Ephraim. The greenwich

Palmers were clearly the children of

Lieut. William Palmer and Judiith

feake... For further account of

Henry Palmer of Wethersfield,

see the William Palmer Family

of Wethersfield or

Westchester, NY."
