He is first granted land in the New Haven colony in 1641, and took the oath of fidelity in 1644. He was evidently well off enough to have a "man" who took his place in the New Haven train band.

    There is no evidence for the claim that he was earlier at Boston, a supporter of Anne Marbury Hutchinson and one of those disarmed as a result.

    Notes:

    "Robert Royce, an early settler in Stratford, CT, had land recorded there in his name as late as 1658, though he appears to have removed to New London, CT a year before that date. He was constable in 1660, and in the folowing year represented New London in the General Court. [...] It needs to be reaffirmed that the New London man was a separate individual from Robert Royce of Boston, with whom he has been persistently confused. Robert Royce of Boston left a widow Elizabeth; Robert Royce of New London died in 1676, leaving a widow Mary." [Janet and Robert Wolfe Genealogy]

    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."

    Samuel married Elizabeth Scudder on 28 Nov 1644 in Barnstable, Barnstable, Massachusetts. Elizabeth (daughter of John Scudder and Elizabeth Stoughton) was born before 31 Jul 1625 in Strood, Medway, Kent, England; died between 28 Feb 1700 and 1 Mar 1700 in Norwich, New London, Connecticut. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  8. 15.  Elizabeth Scudder was born before 31 Jul 1625 in Strood, Medway, Kent, England (daughter of John Scudder and Elizabeth Stoughton); died between 28 Feb 1700 and 1 Mar 1700 in Norwich, New London, Connecticut.

    Other Events:

    • Baptised: 31 Jul 1625, Strood, Medway, Kent, England
    • Alternate death: 29 Nov 1700

    Notes:

    "She came to England probably with her mother and half-siblings Samuel and Joanna Chamberlaine. On 10 Nov 1644, the Boston Church granted to 'our sister Elizabeth Skuddar' a letter of recommendation to the Church at Barnstable. 'John Lathrop the sonne of our sister some time or formerly called Elizabeth Skuddar' was baptized 7 Dec 1645. The baptismal record continues 'now the wife of one John Skuddar,' an error for 'Lothrop' that is mentioned by Savage and noted in the published version." [Jane Fletcher Fiske, "A New England Immigrant Kinship Network," citation details below.]

    "[Elizabeth Scudder's] parents were John SCUDDER and Elizabeth STOUGHTON.  Many genealogies say that her parents were John's brother Thomas Scudder and sister-in-law Elizabeth Lowers. But their daughter Elizabeth married Henry Bartholomew and they had ten children between 1641 and 1658. Elizabeth died 1 Sep 1682 in Salem. There were two Elizabeth Scudders. Her cousin Elizabeth died 28 Feb 1700 in Salem." [Miner Descent]
