1 Bygod EGGLESTON was baptized on 20 February 1586, or possibly 1587 in All Saints Church at Settrington, East Riding, (now North Yorkshire) England. He died on 1 Sept 1674 at Windsor, Connecticut. His will [NOTE 1] was dated 13 November 1673. Sometime before 1612 he arrived at Norwich, Norfolk, England. He married and had four children who were born in England. He emigrated to America on the ship "Mary and John", which sailed from Plymouth, England on 20 March 1630. They landed ten weeks later at Dorchester, Massachusetts. About 1635 he moved to Windsor, Connecticut, which is at the confluence of the Farmington and Connecticut Rivers. Windsor is about six miles north of where the city of Hartford stands today.  Family F1394

5 (Information taken from "Records of Robert Fuller of Salem and Rehoboth and Some of his Descendants" by Clarence C. Fuller, Oxboro, Mass., and "A Record of Some of the Descendants of Rubert Fuller of Salem and Rehoboth," by James Fuller Spoerri.

In 1638, Robert Fuller came from Southampton, England, aboard the ship Bevis, and settled in Salem, Mass. According to land deeds, he bought or held land rights in Reheboth in 1645, but remained in Salem. He was a bricklayer for several years, but not the only one as indicated in some genealogy histories of Robert Fuller.
About 1642, he and Sarah Bowen, daughter of Richard Bowen of
On June 28, 1653, he signed a treaty to settle differences of the town of Rehoboth with Capt. Myles Standish, and Thomas Willett and Josias Winslow, as found in the Bristol County, Mass., Plymouth County Deeds, v. 2, part 1, page 79.
As a property owner in Rehoboth, Robert drew shares in general division of land in 1658 and 1668. He took the Freeman's oath in 1658, and in 1673, he paid taxes of 4 Pounds 10 shillings and 3d. for the expense of King Phillip's War (G.H. Tilton in "Story of Rehoboth Mass." And James Arnold, Vital Records of Rehoboth, 1897.)
In "Early Rehoboth, v 3 by Richard Bowen: In 1676, Robert's wife, Sarah and two sons, John and Samuel ("Robert Fuller of Salem ..." by Jean Muir, Dorsey, Urbana, Ill.), and son-in-law Nehemiah Sabin, were killed during an Indian attack on the town. His home and most of those in the town were destroyed in a raid during King Philips' War.
After the tragedy, Robert gave much of his property to his sons and grandchildren, and held some jointly with son Jonathan.
In 1677, he returned to Salem, and was admitted as Selectman of Salen.
He married Margaret Falton Waller about 1678. He was admitted to First Church in Salem on March 10, 1679. When assignment of seats were made in the meeting house, he and xxx Meacham Sr., were seated in a prestigious spot, directly behind the ministers (Essex Institute Historical Collection, v 69; P 140, 147)
He often received pay for work done on the Salem Townhouse. On March 30, 1697, Robert and Margaret received 65 Pounds from Jacob Manning of Salem for their homestead of house, barns, 10 acres and adjoining tract known as North Field (Essex County Mass. Deeds v 11; P 228.)
Shortly after, he moved back to Rehoboth, where his sons Benjamin and Jonathan lived.
Robert divided his estate among his children before he died. No settlement of the estate has been found. He is buried three miles from Seekonk, per Rehoboth Town Records.

6 *Robert Everitt (From notes of Harry Tanto) Notes See 00.18.5 for some information which needs support. There is considerable uncertainty about Robert Everitt. Some think that he was born in America, and there were families with that name in New England to support that deduction. The best evidence to indicate his birth in England, is an entry whic h seems to have come from a Bible which reads: 'Robert Everitt, born Oct. 15,1715, at Yarley, County of Suffolk, England. married Esther Butterfield, born Sept. 17, 1719. Died Feb. 2, 1805. The widow of John E.' (John E. Butterfield) There are a couple of things to be questioned in this entry. There can be found no place named 'Yarley' in England, but there is a 'Yaxley' and the writer may have misread or mistaken the letter; and was Esther really a widow of some man when sh e married Robert? Perhaps this means her former husband was John Everitt and Robert took some kinfolk's former wife. Then we have the problem of whether Esther's maiden name was Butterfied, or was her deceased husband John Butterfield? These Butte rfields, no doubt, are descended from the immigrant, Benjamin Butterfield and his wife Ann Jundon from England in 1635, who settled for several generations at Chelmsford, Massachusetts. A history offamilies of Ulster County, New York, states that the Everitts: 'left their home in England and established the family in the New World, locating first in New England, with the course of migration westward, finally locating in Ulster co unty, where ... Robert Everitt was born. He became a farmer and a wealthy man, and owned a number of slaves. He reared a large family, all daughters except Daniel, and John Everitt, who, incurring his father's dislike, was disinherited by him.' Al though there are questions, this account will proceed on the bases of a number of assumptions. Robert Everitt may have came to America at age seventeen (about 1732. This would give Robert Everitt the distinction of being the most recently arrived ancestor of ours to North America). He became a farmer in the township of Blooming Grove, Orang e County, New York. Being raised in England, could have made him a staunch Tory when Americans were becoming disillusioned with British rule. On the other hand, the history of Ulster is probably correct, and Robert is part of that well establishe d family of America, who had done well under British rule, and had no desire to leave it. Robert,s daughter, Anne 'Nancy', was age fourteen when Barnabus Many had a strong interest in this girl, and Robert did not welcome this revolutionary suitor into his home at Hamtonburg. When Nancy and Barnabas eloped and married, Robert was said to have whipped his daughter, whereupon Barnabas sued his father-in-law and collected the equivalant of $1 00 in damages. But this is only part of family folklore. It does reflect a character of a father who disowne d a son. John. Nancy was only one of at least eight children of Robert and Esther, and probably the eldest. If animosity existed at the time of marriage of Nancy and Barnabas, it was forgiven by the time of the Revolution. One of Roberts bequests in his will is ' one note of hand of 100 pounds from Barnabas Maney dated Dec. 17th, 1776'. He would not have loaned Barnabas that much ifbad feelings were present. In addition Daniel was ordered to 'teach my grandson. John Manna, (who died the same year as Robe rt) the trade of shoemaking or weaving, and ifhe remain with him till of age, 30 pounds, two suits of good clothes and a horse.' . Robert Everitt purchased land in the Dusenberry Tract about 1750. He settled in what was then Marlborough township by 1773, for at a town meeting that year he was chosen as 'pounder' at Valley (now Plattekill) which was the keeper of the pound fo r animals found at large. He must have left his sons, Daniel and John, in charge of his more developed lands at Blooming Grove, for in the Assessment Rolls of Orange County for 1775, the sons are assessed by John Stewart in District No.7, each 52 5 pounds, 12 shillings and 5 pense. This is the highest assessment of any individuals in the district. Robert's will is dated September 28, 1781 and proved June 28, 1785, so he must have died before the latter date. In . the will he names his wife Esther, two sons, Daniel and John; and six daughters, Nancy, Frances, Patty, Esther, Jane and Sarah . He states: 'Seriously considering the uncertainty of human life in the best and more particularly of my own declining state of health, '. He left his wife one good bedstead, two good cows and six sheep, to be kept by my son Daniel for her use, ' along with 'flax, ground which said son is to sow and dress for her, not exceeding one bushel of seed to be sown yearly, full privilege of my house to live in with my son Daniel, six apple trees, and a decent maintenance out of my estate.' Sh e also received his negro woman, Bell. Daniel was left the faffi1, two yoke of good working oxen, notes of 100 and 20 pounds, Robert's silver watch and his gun. His moveable estate was to be equally divided among his daughters, with three exceptions: Sarah was to get only 5 pounds; Fra nces was to get 5 pounds over her share 'in consideration of her being an infirm and weakly woman'; and Jane was to receive 50 pounds and a cow, above her share because 'of having lived with me and served me longer than any of my daughters.' As the historian mentioned, Robert's son John was basically disinherited. The will left him two pounds 'if peradventure it should so happen that he live in this place again'. The story is that John had been sent to a private school in Millbrook, where he forged checks. Also to gain his father's disfavour, he took a commission as an officer in the British service, received a grant of land in Canada and settled there after the war. Although Robert harboured Tory sentime nts he did not condone a course of armed resistance against the will of the American colonists. Everitt, Robert (I4105)

37 Barnabas Many Notes Husband (Barnabas Many, John, Jean Magny) Wife (Anne 'Nancy' Everitt, Robert) Barnabas Many, born in 1735, was the son of John Many (Jean Magny) and Ann Wines. A descendant, Charles M. Many, in 1914, wrote that Barnabas Many was born on Ann Street in New York City, in the rear of the old Herald building. It is believed tha t his eldest child, James, later lived at that location. Barnabas's parents died when he was young and he was placed under the guardianship of an uncle. When he became of age he took what money was due him ti-om his father's estate and left the city. He went to Orange County, New York, where he bough t a farm near Craigsville in Blooming Grove Township. . In 1760 the twenty-five year old Barnabas eloped with fourteen year old Ann Everitt, nicknamed 'Nancy', the daughter of Robert Everitt and Ester Butterfield. A number of stories have been handed down concerning this elopement. One is that Robert was so vexed at the marriage that he severely whipped Nancy, whereupon Barnabas sued his new father-in-law and collected dan1ages of$100. It appears that Robert Everitt was a loyal Tory, supporting strong ties to England, while Barnabas supported the rising trend of American independence. For these political differences Barna bas was unwelcome in the Everitt home at Hamtonburg. By the time of Robert's will, dated September 28, 1781, these differences must have been resolved. It mentions paying out a loan ti-om Barnabas 'Maney' of 100 pounds, and to 'teach my grandson John 'Manna' the art of shoe making or weaving, and ifhe remain with him (Daniel Everitt) till of age, 30 pounds, two suits of good clothes and a horse.' Nancy, too, is mentioned in the will. In Blooming Grove Township of Orange County, New York, Barnabas and his child bride set up housekeeping and fanning which was then in the 'town of Cornwall'. There is a deed dated 1770, filed in 1775, ti-om Abijah Wells of the town of Goshen (Oran ge County) to Barnabas Manny, 'ofComhill', for property in Comhill precinct, which could be for the farm on which Barnabas raised his large family of eleven children. He was taxed in Cornwall precinct between 1765 and 1775. Besides these taxes, Barnabas was taxed on 320 acres in Little Britain township of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, in 1779. Since this was about 150 miles to the south-west ti-om his home place, one wonders the reason for having this large land po ssession. Did it come to him as a result of the Revolutionary War? By then the Revolutionary War was in full action. In 1775 Barnabas had signed the Articles of Association in Cornwall precinct, which indicates his support of the common efforts to get the British to stop their acts of arbitrary and offensive taxation, and retaliate against their attack when firing on Lexington and Concord. In that same year Barnabas served on the Committee of Safety and Observation, the planning organization to determine how to handle the growing problems. Barnabas further proved his support of the Revolution with action. On May 10, 1777, he entered Lieutenant Joseph Conkling's Company, Colonel Jesse Woodhull's Regiment, in General George Clinton's Brigade of Militia. This company was ordered into service to guard John Carpenter's powder mill in Orange County ti-om May 4th to July 1 st. Barnabas 'Manna' later drew four pounds, thirteen shillings and two pence for one month and twenty-two days service, with anothe r four pounds and eight shillings for rations. Following his military service and the Revolution, Barnabas returned to his farm and family. The censuses of 1790 to 1810 show him there with his family. The 1790 Census says he has one slave. His son Barnabas apparently took over the farm, for Barnabas junior's name appears next to his mother's in the 1820 census. Anne 'Manney' is listed as being over 45. Barnabas had died April 28, 1815, eighty years of age. According to Jane Church, he died suddenly. He had finished hi s day's work, taken supper and retired to bed. Anne was reading a chapter in the Bible and, hearing his groan, went to the bed and found him dead. He was buried in the family cemetery about one hundred feet ti-om the house. When Anne died seven years later, she was laid there at his side. Their fifty-five years of marriage had been extremely fruitful. Barnabas was survived by seven of his eleven children; fifty-eight grandchildren (about thirty more were born after his death) and about thirty-seven great-grandchildren. Many, Barnabas (I4069)

Johan Jacob "Wagonmaker" (Braun) Brown, born 1731 in Ruschberg, Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany, was the oldest son of Johan Stephen Christian Braun (1702-1762) and Maria Eva Hamen. His paternal grandparents were Johan Hans Jacob, blacksmith and farrier, and his wife Verena Agnes Braun; his maternal grandparents, Michael Hamen, court bailiff and his wife Anna Catherina Schneider Hamen.

Jacob, along with his parents and younger siblings, arrived 9 September 1738 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on the ship, GLASGOW. The family settled in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania and resided there until the 1750's, when they moved southward to Rowan County, North Carolina. After arriving in Rowan County, the family began spelling their name "BROWN". In 1760 and 1761, Jacob purchased two tracts of land on Crane Creek, Rowan County, from the Earl of Granville. A portion of this land adjoined that of Jacob's brother, Michael Brown (1732-1807).

Jacob was a wagonmaker, and performed patriotic service during the American Revolution by making and repairing wagons.

1751, Jacob married Elizabeth Goettgen in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, she was the daughter of Johannes Goettgen and Christina Hamen. They were the parents of eleven children:

In 1796, Jacob moved from Rowan County, North Carolina to Washington County, Tennessee. Three of his sons, George, Jacob, Jr., and Abraham, had settled in Washington County several years earlier. Jacob purchased 235 acres of land on a branch of Little Limestone Creek from John Rimeal 17 July 1796. Later that year, he sold portions of this farm to his sons, Jacob, Jr. and David. As years passed the small stream that flows from east to west through the farm became known as the Brown Branch. This farm remained in the Brown family for nearly 150 years, with the last Brown owner selling out in the 1940's; it is presently owned by John W. Howze of Telford. Mr. John W. Hawze, passed away in 2009, I do not know who owns the property now. An old log cabin that was located on this farm was believed to have been Jacob's home; in January 1987, the cabin was dismantled by two descendants, James C. and James T.Dykes, and stored for future restoration.

After moving to Washington County, Jacob began to be referred to as "wagonmaker" in deeds and other legal documents in order to distinguish him from another, unrelated Jacob Brown, who lived near the Nolichucky River. Several of Jacob Brown's children attended Cherokee Baptist Church, a short distance south of the Brown farm; however, it is not known whether Jacob attended services there. Many of Jacob's children, grandchildren and other descendants were blacksmiths, wagonmakers, and wheelwrights.

Jacob died between November 1807, Washington County, Tennessee and was buried in the family cemetery on his farm. As was the custom at that time, his grave was marked with a hand-lettered piece of limestone with the inscription: "Jacob Brown N 1807." As time passed, the cemetery fell into disuse and the gravestones were broken and scattered. Jacob Brown's gravestone was "rediscovered" in 1987 by James T. Dykes, Nell Fox, and Bill Fox and was removed from the farm, with the owner's permission, for safekeeping.
