  • Notes 
    • Notwithstanding what it says above, Samuel Lathrop's death date was 29 February 1700 -- or, to put it in conventional "double date" terms, 29 Feb 1699/1700. Our genealogical database software, unaware of our policy of standardizing "double dates" on the latter year, correctly observes that in terms of the modern calendar there was no 29th of February in 1700, and refuses to accept the date as input.

      From A Genealogical Memoir of the Lo-Lathrop Family in This Country: Embracing the Descendants, as Far as Known, of the Rev. John Lothropp, of Scituate and Barnstable, Mass., and Mark Lothrop, of Salem and Bridgewater, Mass., and the First Generation of Descendants of Other Names, by the Rev. E. B. Huntington, 1884:

      "7. Samuel, born in England, and came with his father to Scituate in 1634, thence to Barnstable, where he Married, Nov. 28, 1644, Elizabeth Scudder, who had been dismissed from the church in Boston Nov. 10, 1644, to remove her church relation to that in Barnstable. She is reported in Savage as a sister to that John Scudder who was in Barnstable in 1640. He had made the acquaintance of Miss Scudder in Boston, where he commenced his business life as a house builder, afterwards combining with his extensive farming operations.   Their marriage was recorded by his father on the Barnstable Church Register as follows: 'My sonn Samuel & Elizabeth Scudder Marryed at my house by Mr. Freeman Nov. 28, 1644.'

      "They settled in Barnstable where his house stood next to that of John Scudder.

      "He is reported, in 1643, as one of five Lothrops at Barnstable liable to bear arms.

      "In 1648 he removed to New London, Connecticut, then called Pequot. We now find Mr. Lothrop mentioned in two letters from Governor Winthrop to his son at Pequot.  In one of these bearing date Aug. 14, 1648, on the subject of obtaining a minister for the settlement, he writes, "Your neighbour Lothrop came not at me (as I expected) to advise about it," etc.

      "His house lot in the new plantation was the third in order from that of John Winthrop Jr. Esq. and his name was one of the first eighteen to whom were assigned lands on the east side of the 'great river' of Pequot, and for these the lots were drawn on the 17th and 31st of January, 1648-9."
