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 ?.
Notes for SQUIRE HUMPHREY TIFFANY:
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 ".....to 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.

I have a number of books here at the house on Block Island or Newport
County, Rhode Island. There are NO Tiffany family members buried in the main
cemetery on Block Island.

There is an Ephraim Tiffany (Captain) 1704-February 27, 1771 buried in Prince Hill Cemetery in Barrington, Rhode Island. Check out this web site of cemetery records of all of Rhode Island. This is the main page: RI Historical Cemeteries Transcription Project

This is the page just for Tiffany

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.
