  • Notes 
    • There has been considerable confusion among genealogists about the identities of the various early inhabitants of New Haven by the name of Thompson. According to an account published in 1912 (New England Historical and Genealogical Register 66: 197-209) by the careful genealogist of West Haven, Mr. Donald Lines Jacobus, the John Thompson, "Farmer," of East Haven, was not related to the three brothers who founded the New Haven families, in spite of the fact that the latter supposition has influenced the opinions of many writers. Mr. Jacobus forms his conclusions from a most critical and analytical study of the county, court, and probate records, and therefore they may be considered sound and reliable.
      I. John THOMPSON married Dorothy ???? and lived at East Haven, Connecticut. His estate was inventoried in 1655, which was probably the year of his death. His widow was still unmarried in February, 1656, when her name appears in the Proprietors Records, but shortly thereafter she married (2) Thomas Harrison, of Branford, Connecticut, by whom she had two sons-Thomas, born 1 March 1657, and Nathaniel, born 13 December 1658. Evidently she did not live long after the birth of this second son, for on 29 March 1666, Thomas Harrison married (2) Elizabeth Stent.
      CHILDREN of John and Dorothy:
      1.Hannah; married 26 June 1662, Matthew Molthrop, who died in 1691. She died in 1681.
      2.JOHN; married Priscilla POWELL.
      3.Mary; married 27 December 1666, John Cooper, baptized 28 May 1642. She died November 1714.
      4.Joseph.
      5.Abigail (twin), born 26 January 1651; married (1) 25 November 1672, Joseph Alsop, jr., born 1649; died 12 January 1691. She married (2) Captain John Miles, jr., born 1668 and died 1710. She died 1727.
      6.Rebecca (twin), born 26 January 1651; married (1) 3 February 1669, Daniel Thomas, of West Haven, who died 1694. She married (2) about 1703, John Perkins, born 18 August 1651 died after 1727. She died after 1730.
      7.Sarah, born 30 April 1654; married 24 November 1678, Ailing Ball, born 27 June 1656, died 1710. She died 1716.
      II. John THOMPSON, born about 1645, lived at East Haven, Connecticut. He was called "farmer," to distinguish him from John Thompson, seaman, or "mariner." He was also a sergeant. He married 22 May 1666, Priscilla Powell, daughter of Thomas and Priscilla Powell, the ceremony being performed at Branford, Connecticut, by Mr. Jasper Crane. (New Haven Vital Records, Historical Collections 1: 24.)
      He died 13 February 1692, according to the records, his will, bearing same date, being probated in June following. In this document be mentions eldest son John, and the two youngest children, Samuel and Abigail. The other daughter, Priscilla, was then already married. His widow survived a number of years, dying 18 April 1726, the records of that event referring to her as "Priscilla, widow of Sergeant John Thompson, ae 80." (East Haven Register, Dodd, 162.)
      III. Priscilla THOMPSON, born at East Haven, Connecticut, 7 August 1671, married about 1689, Ebenezer CHEDSEY born 10 February 1665.
