Generation: 1

  1. 1.  Samuel Hazen was born on 1 May 1713 in Norwich, New London, Connecticut.

    Other Events:

    • Baptised: 6 Nov 1715, Norwich, New London, Connecticut

    Notes:

    From The Hazen Family in America (citation details below):

    Nothing has been learned of his marriage or death.

    The name of Samuel Hazen is the first of the family to have been found in New Jersey records. In an old volume at Newton appears this record: "At a court of General Sessions of the Peace held at Hardwick, County of Sussex, on the Third Tuesday in February in the year of our Lord one Thousand seven hundred and fifty five and in the Twenty eighth year of his Majesty's Reign--The King vs. Charles McConnell--Indictment for misdemeanor. The attorney general opened the cause and the following Evidences pro Rege--Mary Robins, Jane Robins, Joshua Robins, Saml. Hazen, Thomas Wolverton."

    Soon after this date, the names of Thomas and Daniel Hazen appear in the same book of court records, and in 1778 the name of Nathaniel Hazen [son of John]. This corroborates the general tradition among their descendants that three or four brothers came from Connecticut to New Jersey at about the same time. The only known child of Samuel is his son Samuel.

  1. 2.  Samuel Hazen Descendancy chart to this point (1.Samuel1) was born on 5 Apr 1749 in Litchfield, Litchfield, Connecticut; died after 1812 in Sussex County, New Jersey.

    Notes:

    His wife's name is not known but is said to have been Mary.

    From The Hazen Family in America (citation details below):

    There is no doubt that he is the Samuel Hazen of Woodbury who sold a dwelling house standing a little west of the Eight-mile Brook, 16 Nov. 1781, but there is no evidence as to how long he had been in Woodbury. He bought six acres at Kettletown, Southbury Parish, in 1787, and sold it 31 May 1790. The census of 1790 gives in the family of Samuel Hazen of Southbury, separated from Woodbury in 1787, four boys under sixteen and three females, one doubtless his wife.

    There is a tradition that he was a soldier under Washington in the Revolution, that he spelled his name with two z's, and that he was too lazy to write the two z's and only used one commonly.

    He moved from Connecticut to Sussex County, New Jersey, it is said, when his son Ithamar was twelve years old or about 1794.
