  1. 1.  William Mullins was born Abt 1572; died 21 Feb 1621, Plymouth, Plymouth, Massachusetts.

    Notes:

    Emigrated on the Mayflower, 1620. Died in the first winter. He was a shoemaker.

    From "The Probable English Origin of Mayflower passenger Peter Browne, and His Association with Mayflower Passenger William Mullins," by Caleb Johnson, The American Genealogist 79:3, July 2004:

    "The parentage and ancestry of William Mullins have not been conclusively proven. The Mullins family may have been living in Dorking for a considerable period of time prior to William Mullins himself, as the Dorking manor court rolls between 1454 and 1458 mention a Peter and Isabel Moleyn on several occasions. The Dorking parish registers are unfortunately defective for the years 1572 through 1578 -- the time period in which we would expect William to have been baptized. However, there was only one Mullins family in Dorking that was having children during this time period: the John Mullins who married Joan Bridger there on 8 July 1571. Most of their children would have fallen into the 'black hole' in the registers. On 23 September 1582, we see the baptism of their last child, Edward Mullins. On 4 February 1583/4, a Mullins (no Christian name given) was buried. Wc can reasonably assume this burial record was for John Mullins the father, because the next Mullins burial record in the registers, on 8 July 1584, was recorded as the 'son of widow Mullins.' And since son Edward Mullins appears in no subsequent Dorking records, we can speculate that this was the unnamed son who was buried. The following year, on 1 November 1585, the widow Joane Mullins was remarried to Vyncent Benham.
    "Two Mullinses appear in later Dorking records; they are assumed to be unrecorded children of John and Joan (Bridger) Mullins. They are the Mayflower passenger, William Mullins, and John Mullins."

    William married Alice Bef 1593. Alice died Aft 2 Apr 1621, Plymouth, Plymouth, Massachusetts. [Group Sheet]

    Notes:

    Revolutionary War: Private in Capt. Elijah Walker's company, Col. John Hathaway's regiment which marched to the Tiverton Alarm in 1780.

    From The Descendants of Richard Sares (Sears) (citation details below):

    Alden Sears, " yeoman," of Rochester, resided for a time in Nova Scotia, and was one of the grantees of the town of Liverpool in 1761.

    His wife dying, he returned to the States, living for a time in Pawtucket and Providence, engaged in boat-building and distilling.

    He had been previously a seaman, and is said to have commanded a whaling vessel before he was of age.

    Marrying again, he settled in Dighton, Mass., on the old Walker homestead, which, on the death of her father, fell to his wife. The old house is still standing, near 200 years old, and is a good specimen of early colonial times.

    About the commencement of the Revolutionary War he resumed his voyages, and in returning from the West Indies with a cargo of molasses was captured by the British, lost his vessel and cargo, and was held prisoner several years.

    An English officer, with whom he made friends, finally procured his release and supplied him with funds for his return. His wife is said to have had full faith during all the years of his absence that he would return, although others had given him up as dead.

    According to the superstitions of the times, there were many signs convincing to her that he would return.

    One evening in turning her tea-cup, the peculiar position of the leaves was proof that he was then on his way home.

    She rose hastily, saying: "Alden will be home to-night, and I must put the house in order, and dress and go to meet him."

    Upon opening the door, she really saw him in the distance approaching the house.

    They removed to Bristol, N. Y., in 1792, with others from the vicinity of Dighton. For his land he paid six cents an acre.

    He was in Capt. Elijah Walker's Co., in Col. John Hathaway's Regiment, and marched on "ye alarm of Aug. 2, 1780, to Tiverton, 18 miles' travel, 7 days' service, wages £1 8 0. Tiverton, 18 miles' travel, 7 days' service, wages £1 8 0."

    -----

    Note on the above: Alden Sears married his second wife, Phebe Walker, the one in the anecdote above, in Dighton, Massachusetts, 29 December 1769. So his first wife, Hannah Bassett, who died in Nova Scotia on an unknown date, has to have died before then. Therefore what he returned to can't have been "the States" as claimed above. No entity called "the States", United States or otherwise, existed in eastern North America in or before 1769.

    When Alden Sears went from Massachusetts to Nova Scotia and then back to Massachusetts, he no more thought of himself as visiting a foreign land than he would have thought that way of relocating to Connecticut. He probably would have considered Quebec a foreign place, because although it was by then ruled from London it was dominated by French speakers. But Nova Scotia was just another English colony in which most of the inhabitants spoke English.

    Alden married Phoebe Walker 29 Dec 1769, Dighton, Bristol, Massachusetts. Phoebe (daughter of Elnathan Walker and Bethiah Tisdale) was born 1748, Dighton, Bristol, Massachusetts; died 23 Oct 1830, Bristol, Ontario, New York. [Group Sheet]

    Notes:

    Lawyer and politician. He was a representative of the town of New Haven in the State Legislature for seven or eight sessions, most of them during the war of 1812. The institution that eventually became Yale Law School began with him training legal apprentices in his law office in New Haven in the first decade of the 19th century.

    "After completing his studies at Yale [Seth Perkins Staples] began the study of the law in the office of the Hon. David Daggett in New Haven, Connecticut for two years. During this time Seth hand-copied a set of Tapping Reeve's law notes for his own use, but never attended the Litchfield Law School as a student (a common misconception). Once his understanding of the law was adequate. Seth passed the bar in Litchfield in 1799, and then immediately opened a law office of his own in New Haven and commenced practice. In that same year he married Catharine Wales Staples. During their marriage the couple had six children; three sons and three daughters, one daughter of which later attended the Litchfield Female Academy. The future Yale Law School formed in the New Haven law office of Seth P. Staples. Staples owned an exceptional library (an attraction for students at a time when law books were scarce), and he began training apprentices in the early 1800s. By the 1810s his law office had a full-fledged law school. Samuel Hitchcock, one of Staples' former students, became a partner at the office and later, the proprietor of the New Haven Law School." [Litchfield Historical Society]

    "The [New Haven Law] School began in the New Haven law office of Seth P. Staples in the 1800s, who began training lawyers. By 1810 he was operating a law school. He took on a former student, Samuel J. Hitchcock, as a law partner, and Hitchcock became the proprietor of the New Haven Law School, joined by David Daggett in 1824. (The Yale Law School shield, shown at the upper right of this page, shows staples and a rampant dog, representing Seth Staples and David Daggett.) The school's affiliation with Yale began in the mid-1820s and in 1843, the school's students began receiving Yale degrees." [Wikipedia article on Yale Law School]
