4-John Beebe was born on 4 Nov 1628 in Broughton, Northamptonshire, England and died on 28 Apr 1714 in New London, New London Co, CT, at age 85.
General Notes: In the summer of 1676, Ensign John Beebe on New London, with Captain George Denison, was with a company which was raised in New London County for the Indian War. There was once a dispute between the New London and Lyme people over the right to mow grass on debatable land. When the Lyme people came with a constable who began to read a warrant for the apprehension of another ensign, Sergeant Beebe interruped him crying "we care not a straw for your paper." There was a struggle between the two parties which did not result seriously to either side. In 1671-2, he was brought before the court, with many others in New London, "for an attempt to drive Mr. Matthew Griswold and Lieut. William Waller by violence off their lands, resistance to
authority and assault." Very likely he had been for some time on the plantation of New London in the service of John Winthrop, the founder. There are records of several land purchases in 1651 and 1652 by John. In 1707, he deeded 31 acres to his son
Benjamin. This deed was recorded 28 April 1714 but he was probably dead at that time. He was called a "Leather Dresser" in a deed dated 1660. In 1675, he was appointed Ensign by the general court. During King Philip's War in June 1676, he went on
several expeditions against the Indians to Rhode Island, Taunton and beyond Westfield, MA on the way to Albany. On one of these expeditions, the company ascended the Connecticut River to Northampton, where they joined Major Talcot with supplies of
which the army was in urgent need. In 1690, he was commissioned a lieutenant.
Clarence Beebe in "John Beebe of Broughton," 1921, says his death was "about April 1714."
4-Rebecca Beebe was born in 1630, was christened on 23 Jun 1630 in Broughton, Northamptonshire, England, and died on an unknown date.
4-Samuel Beebe was born on 23 Jun 1633 in Broughton, Northamptonshire, England, was christened on 23 Jun 1633 in St Andrews, Broughton, Northamptonshire, England, and died on 6 Apr 1712 in Plum Island, Long Island Sound, CT, at age 78.
General Notes: Samuel was a twin brother of Thomas and baptized with him at Broughton,
England, 23 June 1633. He came to New England in 1649 with his brother
John. They lived briefly in Glouchester, MA but then removed to New
London, CT where land was granted him December 2nd 1651 as well as several times afterwards. In 1708 he testified that he and his brother made the
fence to Mr Winthrop's ox pasture "sixty years since." This expression is
understood to mean about sixty years as he could not have been in New
London earlier than the summer of 1650. A deed recorded in New London, and
dated 8 May 1716 from Mary Beebe, then resident of Colchester, and relict
of Samuel Beebe, late of New London, deceased, and conveyed to Samuel Fox of New London, for a valuable sum of money, land in New London,
"originally granted to William Keeney." He probably moved to Plum Island
and died there early in 1712 as administration was granted on his estate,
6 April 1712, to his widow, Mary and his son Samuel of Southold, Long
Island. The Genealogy by Clarence Beebe names a first wife, Agnes Keeney,
which is believed to be in error. Search does not reveal any such person
other than Mary Keeney's mother, the wife of William Keeney. It appears
that Clarence Beebe merely repeated the incorrect information provided by
Frances M. Caulkins who earlier wrote the History of New London. New
London Probate Record (A/620), rejected will of Samuel Beebe of New
London, dated 10 Nov 1702, mentions wife Mary (executor), sons Samuel,
William, Nathaniel, Jonathan and Thomas Beebe; daughters Agnes, Susanna
and Mercy. His daughter Mary was not mentioned although Mary dec'd was
mentioned in the distribution of her father's estate.
Samuel married Agnes (Mary) Keeney . Agnes was born in 1640 in New London, New London Co, CT and died on 5 Apr 1725 in Colchester, New London Co, CT, at age 85.
4-Thomas Beebe was born in 1633 in Broughton, Northamptonshire, England, was christened on 23 Jun 1633 in Broughton, Northamptonshire, England, and died about 1699 in New London, New London Co, CT, about age 66.
General Notes: Thomas was made a freeman of the Colony in 1666 and was of a committee of
seven to fortify New London against King Philip in 1675. The date shown is the
date he was baptized in England. His homestead descended to his son Thomas, by
whom it was conveyed in the latter years of his life, to his nephew, William
4-Nathaniel Beebe was born on 23 Jan 1635 in Broughton, Northamptonshire, England and died on 17 Dec 1724 in Hartford, Hartford Co, CT, at age 89.
General Notes: Nathaniel settled in Stonington, CT. His land was absorbed in the large
estates of his neighbors the Denisons. In the will of William Denison (1715)
he disposes of the Beeby land, but adds "I order my executors to take a
special care of Mr Nathaniel Beeby during his life and give him a Christian
burial at his death." His gravestone is near the Denisons and states that he
died December 17th 1724, aged 93. There is no record that he ever married or
4-Mary Beebe was born on 18 Mar 1637 in Broughton, Northamptonshire, England and died on an unknown date in Hartford, Hartford Co, CT.
General Notes: According to the files of John Blodgett, she was unmarried and of New London,
CT on 30 Sep 1662.
4-Hannah Beebe was born on 23 Jun 1640 in Broughton, Northamptonshire, England and died before 1650 in Hartford, Hartford Co, CT, before age 11.
General Notes: She is believed to have died before the date of her father's will since she is
4-James Beebe was born in 1641 in Broughton, Northamptonshire, England and died on 22 Apr 1728 in Danbury, Fairfield Co, CT, at age 87.
General Notes: According to Clarence Beebe, James was probably baptized at Broughton,
England in the year 1641. He was undoubtedly the youngest of the Beebe
brothers and probably accompanied his father to New England in 1650 when
but 9 years of age. Not many years later he is found at Hadley, MA where
he remained for more than 25 years. He was apprenticed by William Lewis,
overseer of his father's Will to Thomas Stanley, of Hartford and Hadley.
Stanley in his Will bequeathed five pounds "unto James Beebe my servant to
be paid unto him a'ft he hath p'formed that tyme of service whe was
promised by William Lewis, that he is to be with me until he is 20 and 5
years old." In 1679 he was a resident of Stratford, CT but soon removed to
Norwalk and thence to Danbury. The first permanent settlement of Danbury
was made in 1685 by James and seven other families. Here he was appointed
to sundry offices, being a Commissioner in 1691, a Lieutenant in 1696, a
Justice of the Peace for many years from 1698, a Deputy to the General
Assembly in 1710, and Captain of the Train Band from 1716. He died at Danbury, CT 22 April 1728 at the age of 87 as recorded on his tombstone. This stone was seen by Rev. Thomas Robbins and referred to in a century sermon in 1801.
