You and I would be 7th cousins. Eliz. Foote Churchill's brother, Nathaniel Foote (1619-1655) is my 8th g.grandfather. I'd certainly like family info on Elizabeth and Josiah Churchill's family (children, etc.). I have the Foote family carried back another 3 generations, if that would help you.

I like to track descendents down 3 generations from a common ancestor (in this case Nathaniel), so yes, I'd surely like to know the spouses of those children. Thanks.

I was reading some old posts when I noticed your comment that you "have the Foote family carried back another 3 generations". If that is back from the subject couple, I would be interested in the information.

My connection is through son Robert(1627)as follows:

Robert, Nathaniel(1660), Moses, Ebenezer, Darius, Eliza
m. Timson R. GATES, Esther L. m. Nathaniel B. LINES,
Lillias H. m. Charles L. THOMPSON, Charles B., Abbott,
Edwin (cousin eddy).

If I calculate correctly, this makes Nathaniel & Elizabeth my 10th great grandparents.

I am currently working on some of my brick walls, but it would be nice to stop and add more generations to what I have on the Foote line. I am also missing primary source information on the later Foote generations.

Will appreciate hearing from you...

Sometime before the year 1633 the family moved from London England to Boston,
Massachusetts. He settled first, upon arrival in the New World, at Watertown,
Mass.; where he took the freeman's oath 3 Sep 1633. According to the records of
"The Original Distribution of Lands Around Wethersfield" recorded in 1640, a
short time after arriving in Wethersfield in 1635, Nathaniel received a ten
acre house lot on the east side of Broad Street. This land was near the south
end of the street. This land was purchased directly from the Wongunk Indians at
a place located along the Connecticut River that was called Pyguaq, later
renamed Wethersfield. Additionally, he became the owner of several other tracts
laying in part in the great meadow east of his house and containing close to
400 acres of land. In 1641, he was appointed a delegate to the General Court.
He was a juror in 1643 and 1644.

3. Elizabeth Deming, daughter of Jonathan Deming and Elizabeth Gilbert, was
born in Oct 1595 in Shalford, Essex, Eng,3 died on 28 Jul 1683 in
Wethersfield, Hartford, CT at age 87, and was buried in Wethersfield,
Hartford, CT.

General Notes: Very little is known of the Deming family before they left
England. Since the first Puritans left England to secure a better place to
practice their religion. It might be assumed that the Demings left England for
similar reasons.

That they held strong religious convictions is evident in the records they left
in Connecticut. Elizabeth was born in England in the last part of the 16th
century. In January of the year 1616, a short time after he finished his
apprenticeship training, she married Nathaniel Foote in Colchester, Essex,
England.

After the birth of their sixth child Nathaniel decided to sell his grocery
business in Colchester and immigrate to the New World. By some he is considered
to be the first settler of Wethersfield.

Whether or not that is true we do not know. We do know he was one of ten men
who settled along the bank of the Connecticut River and named their settlement,
Wethersfield. They are know as the "Ten Adventurers"

Elizabeth was the sister of John Deeming, who was one of the first settlers of
Wethersfield Conn. in the year of 1630. John Deeming was for many years one of
the magistrates of the " Colony of the Connecticut " and one of the patentees
named in it's charter.

Since Elizabeth Deming married Nathaniel Foote who spent his early life in
Shalford, Colchester, England, it can be assumed that

(1.) John and Elizabeth lived in the same area of England.

(2) Elizabeth and Nathaniel were known to have been in the Colony of
Massachusetts Bay and residing in Waterton when it is recorded Nathaniel took
the oath of a freeman.

(3.) The Foote family must have joined with the Demings in feeling some
dissatisfaction with the manner of life in Watertown and joined with others in
making the 100 mile trek in 1635 through the forests of the New World until
they arrived at Pyquag on the shores western shore of the beautiful Connecticut
River.

Nathaniel Foote was one of those named in the charter of patentees of
Wethersfield. The Foote family became one of the leading families of the little
Connecticut Colony. He became a magistrate, a leading land owner, eventually
owning more than 500 acres of land in Wethersfield, some of the great meadow,
and his home on the south end of the green, next to the present Broad Street.

The family was saddened by Nathaniel's death at age 61. Elizabeth was so
respected that she was allowed to be executor of his estate. Elizabeth was left
a wealthy widow, but did not remain in that status for long. In 1646 she
married Thomas Wells who was a widower with several children from his first
marriage. Thomas Wells served as Governor of Connecticut Colony for two terms,
1655-1658. When he was not serving as governor he was a Deputy Governor. He
died during his last years of being deputy governor, 14 January 1659/1660.

Elizabeth was again a widow, having two families instead of one. She was in
control of a large estate from both husbands.

Elizabeth Welles was a tenacious and feisty old woman. She had not only
survived a perilous voyage from England but while tending to six exuberant
children and a husband, she had made a new life for herself and her family in a
world they knew nothing about. This world was inhabited by Indians who were not
always friendly with those pale face people. The rigors of life and managing a
household did not daunt her.

Things went quite well through the intervening years since arriving on shores
of the newly discovered continent, until she reached old age. In 1676 as she
approched the age of 80 years, she ran into trouble with one of her step-grand
children.

This was Robert Welles, a favorite of grandfather, Governor Thomas Welles when
the governor was alive. Robert had arrived at the Governor's home, there to be
taken care of and educated.

But now his grandfather was dead and Robert and his step-grandmother disagreed.
Maybee she did not think him old enough to be married at age 24. Never-the-less
it was 1676 when Elizabeth brought Robert Welles to court, because he "...hath
dammyfield her Barne by Parting with the other part of the Barne that did
adjoin to it."

Exactly what he did to her barn is not clear. The court's decision was clear.
He was ordered to repair the barn and also to pay his step-grandmother rent for
it. Elizabeth made sure the barn incedent was not here last word.

Two years later, in 1678, she made sure all of the Welles were taken care of
when she made her will. She left them nothing. She stated someone outside the
family would be executor of her will. Everything she had she left to her own
family. That is the family she and Nathaniel has raised and nurtured. The
Welles family got nothing.

Elizabeth died in 1683, at the age of 88. The estate was devided among the
Footes. One of the documents in the Probates Court was that of the final
disposition, that during that same year Robert Welles won a lawsuit against his
step-grandmother's will that he would have to be paid by those who had been
named in the will. (Source - Article in Footeprints - Spring 1999 Issue - The
Foote Family Association)

Research Notes: Elizabeth was a sister of John Deming, her will appointing him
overseer of her estate,called him "my beloved brother".

Elizabeth married Nathaniel Foote in Jan 1616 in Colchester, Essex,
England.(3) Nathaniel was born on 21 Sep 1592 in St. Botolph's,
Billingsgate, London, England,1 died on 20 Nov 1644 in Wethersfield,
Hartford, CT at age 52, and was buried on 20 Nov 1644 in Wethersfield,
Hartford, CT.

Elizabeth next married Gov. Thomas Welles about 1646 in Wethersfield,
Hartford, CT. Thomas was born in 1590 and died on 14 Jan 1660 in
Wethersfield, Hartford, CT at age 70.

General Notes: Gov Thomas Welles - In 1646 Thomas married Elizabeth Foote,
widow of Nathaniel Foote who died in Wethersfield in 1643, and sister of Joseph
Deming of Wethersfield. She was unwilling to leave the homestead of many acres
she was managing after her husband's death.

As a result, one of the highest officers in the colony left his home in the
center of Hartford and moved to Wethersfield with his younger children, Samuel
and Sarah who were raised with her younger children Frances, Sarah, and
Rebecca.

Thomas wrote his will on 7 Nov 1659. He seemed to be in good health on the
evening of 14 Jan 1659/60, being well after supper, but dead by midnight. His
will left his wife the use of half his housing and orchard, with her own land
to be returned to her. His own land and house went to his grandson Robert, the
only child of his oldest son to live in Wethersfield.

He left land to sons Samuel and Thomas, and to Thomas son of the deceased son
John, 20 pounds to Thomas, Samuel, Mary's children, Anne, Sarah, and 10 pounds
to Mary Robbins' children. Elizabeth lived another 22 years, leaving her estate
to her children and grandchildren by Nathaniel Foote.

There were two DIFFERENT Robert Footes who were born in 1627; one who married Sarah Potter was a son of a Nathaniel Foote, and they did also have a son, the eldest of 8 children, named Nathaniel who was born in 1660. Does that help?

Just found this marvelous Foote info. I too am a 10gr grandchild of Nathaniel & Elizabeth Deming Foote.
My line stems from their child Nathanial (1619); then Daniel (1652); then John (1680); then Peter (1725); then Peter Foote (1760);

then Charles (1800); then Martin (1842); then daugh Lorain who married Rhodes (Rhoades); then daugh Florence who married Lukenbill; and down 3 more generations to me.

Charles had several wives and who knows how many children.

Does you have any information on Charles. I cannot seem to find him linked anywhere.
