10) ROBERT MILLER (IMG)

1652-1711 NEW LONDON, CT (8GGF)

10a) Recorded in; The Diary of Joshua
Hempstead, page 27 ,Wed 19 Aug 1713; "Robert
Miller's wife died last night, was buried today."
10b) Robert -1- Miller's death is recorded in; New
England Marriages Prior to 1700, p 509, where it states;
 "Robert died 1711.
10c) All 5 children are mentioned in Roberts will of 1711.
It states double portions are to go to Robert, the other
four children are to receive single portions. His children
Henry and Sarah choose their mother Elizabeth as
their guardian.
10d) In; History: of New London, by Caulkins, page
327 , we read that Robert Miller died leaving children
Robert, John and an unamed daughter". It also states
Robert settled in the Nathantick District, on the border
of Lyme, in about 1687.
10e) Lyme, New London, CT, land rec. Vol 2, 103,
states Robert bought land in Nahantick Plaines from
Mathew Beckwick on 07 Oct 1693. He also recieved ten
acres of uplands in Lyme on 27 Jan 1697,
 10f) In Lyme Land Rec, Henry sold and to William Minor
on 27 May, 1743, in this transction Henry is called "of
Brandford, Ct" , Vol 7 p 418, and the land is described
as being "formerly of his father Robert".
10g) Causing much confusion is the fact that there were two
Robert MILLER's during this period, and causing even
further confusion is the interesting fact that they
BOTH married women named Elizabeth. However,
it is commonly believed that the one who married
Elizabeth "SABIN", is not OUR Robert MILLER.
NOTE: Keep for reference; In "A Genealogical
Dictionary of The First Settlers of New England" by
James Savage, we find the following refereence; "A
Miller came in the Planter, 1635 age 21 from Kingston,
Near London, and no more is heard of him".

14) JOHN -1- SEARLE

1610-1641 SPRINGFIELD, MA
(10GGF)
14a) From Jerry Waters to jlfrench 09 Dec 2001: 1)
John was among the first settlers of Springfield, MA.
 Earliest Springfield, MA records say he landed there
about 20 Mar 1636 and was the first death in Springfield
on 11 Aug 1641
14b) Occupation: Lot Measurer (Surveyor)
14c) John -1- was born in Warwick, England. He came
to Boston in 1634 with his two brothers, Andrew and
Edward, and perhaps a sister, Joanna. But their parents
 are still unknown.
14d) John Neal, Berwick, Maine, first  mentioned 1660. All
evidence indicates that his wife, Joanna
was a daughter of Andrew Searle. John's son, Andrew
Neal administrated Searle's estate in 1690. I also believe
he had a son, John who died 17 Jul 1722 in Stratham, NH.

15) JOHN -2- SEARLES

 (added an "S" to his surname)
1641-1718  SPRINGFIELD, MA (9GGF)
15a) NOTE: Some (including Dean Merrill White),
have his parents listed as John -2- 's parents as
John -1- Searl 23 Mar 1611 and Margaret Channon
28 Apr 1611. They have him with a birth year of abt 1631.
This would have mad him only 7 or 8 years old when
he married Sarah Baldwin. They have his
death as 03 Oct 1718

Note:
From the Salem Witch Trials:
I have found a Deposition of
Nathaniel Clark and wife,
Elizabeth, 20 Oct 1686 "Testimony
against Goodwife Susannah Martin"
I believe this Nathaniel may be
related to my Matthew, perhaps
even his father since the dates
would work. If anyone has
these folks' data, I'd love to hear
from you.
