I have Stephen Coddington in Bourbon Co. Ky.marrying in 1794. I have a copy of a document from the courthouse naming him Stephen Corrington, aka Coddington. Most of his children moved from Ky to either ILL or Ind. The only one that stayed behind was my Wesley. I can't find Stephen in N.J. where he says he was born. All the Coddingtons, that I have been able to trace in N.Y. and N.J. do not list a Stephen as son or heir. Do you have any information on him? Let me know if you would like more specific dates for marriage and childrens' names. CB

Clare,
Stephen is my 3rd greatgrandfather, being related to his son Nelson Word Corrington.
I'm living in New Jersey and have found reference to a large number of Coddingtons in New Jersey.
Do you have any leads as to Stephen's parents?
I would be happy to share information.

Dear Mr. Wantland,

I sure wish I had something on Stephen's parents...He just appears in Kentucky and I can't get behind him. I have been up to Trinton, looking at the archives there and at the national archives and yes...there are a lot of Coddingtons in New Jersey and New York around the time of the American Revolution...only one mention of a Stephen is in Benjamin's will in Md. and Benjamin's age is such that they are more likely siblings rather than father and son...if dates are correct, only 11 years apart. I would like to trade information. I have not been as dedicated as I should be, but would like to get back to it. Let me know how we can procede. Clare

Just recv'd posting in Coddington board. My paternal grandfather's mother was Anna Barrett Coddington. Still looking for birth/death dates. Anyway, I show a Stephens(with an s at the end?) as the son of Benjamin Coddington and Annar Miller Crane. Benjamin was born Nov 10,1759 in Middlesex,Nj died near Shelbysport,MD. He and Annar had 16 children,one of whom is Stephens,don't know birthdate. Don't know if he lived in Ky. Stephens did have a brother,Benjamin.I'm a descendant of Benjamin's(Sr)'s son,David(Stephens brother).Fell free to email if you think we may be related or have ?'s. Monser@coqui.net

I have a Stephen Coddington, son of Benjamin and Annar Crane Coddington, born August 1,1787 in Allegany County, Md. I did get most of my information from the Merlyn Coddington Tree.
I am also a descendent of Benjamin and Annar through their son Joseph.

Try this, it has Stephen Coddington with father John, born in N.J. and lived in Kentucky.

I don't believe the spelling changed as the Coddington's moved...I feel it's more on how the census takers interpreted the spelling. I'm descended from Stephen Coddington/Corrington born 1769. His first marriage certificate in 1794 was signed as Coddington, but when he remarried in 1833, he signed his name as Corrington. This was in Kentucky, by the way. There is a Joseph Coddington/Corrington botn 1763 living in Ohio (believed to be related to Stephen but can't find proof)who died in 1833. His will is signed as Coddington. There was a codicil to the will by his widow wanting to transfer administration of will over to her son, John Coddington. It was signed with her "mark" and written next to it was Saray Corrington. I read in one place where it was thought there was a rift in the family and that's why the name was changed. Another instance was how they pronounced the name, meaning the English rolled the "d's" on their tongue and came out sounding like "r's" to the census takers.....Jackie
