  • Notes 
    • "He was baptized at St. Mary's on May 2, 1637 (seven months before Oliver Cromwell and his wife Elizabeth had their daughter Frances baptized there). In 1657 Gabriel received twenty pounds by his father's will. No further mention of this Gabriel appears in the Ely records. After the Restoration of Charles II in 1661, many who had benefited from the Commonwealth and who were likely to be punished by the reinstated Bishop Wren sought greater economic opportunity in the American colonies. According to a handwritten note on the back of a portrait of Thomas Leggett (1755-1843), painted in 1843, Gabriel arrived in New York [New Amsterdam, until 1664] in 1661." [Leggett of Ely, Cambridgeshire, England and West Farms (Bronx), New York]
