  • Notes 
    • From The Harmon and Perry Genealogy:

      Samuel HOTCHKISS was born in 1623 in Dodington, parish of Whitchurch, Shropshire, England. He died on 28 December 1663 at the age of 40 in New Haven, New Haven, Connecticut. He was buried on 28 December 1663 in New Haven, New Haven, Connecticut. Samuel was christened in Dodington, Whitchurch, England.

      Founder of the family in America, who is supposed to have come from Essex, England, was a resident of New Haven, CT in 1641, being among the first to locate there, and remaining there until his death.

      Emigrated to the American colony of New Haven about 1638. May have been sent with the New Haven Colony founders at the behest of an older brother, Thomas, a Puritan minister and possible associate of John Davenport, one of the founders of New Haven. Sailed for New World in May, 1637 on the Hector. Samuel and Elizabeth Cleverly were allowed to marry September, 1642 without their parent's permission even though underage because they had spoiled one another for everyone else due to their "filthy dalliance". They had been whipped in August 1642 after being caught in said "filthy dalliance", so marriage was probably a necessity.
