Thomas Dennet

16 Nov 1641

Hi Tim
The will is dated 16 November 1641.  Thomas Dennett is from Husbourn Crawley.  He talks about a Ralph Snagge of Kempston and his manor house called Daubeney.  There is a manor called Daubeney in Kempston.  Thomas Dennett owned land, tenements, messuages, etc. in Kempston.   His wife's
name is Mary.  His sons are George, John, Thomas, William, and Robert.  His daughters are Mary (Farr), Ann, Dorothy, Jane, and Martha.  He mentions that his daughter Mary is the wife of Stephen ffarr and they have a son named John.  Did you already know that?  Thomas Dennett has a brother in law named Robert Souyth or Sonyth, of Buckinghamshire. I can't tell if it's a "u' or an "n" in his name.  This scribe is terrible. He talks about a Ralph Comingston and a Thomas Merry.  The will was written in the presence of John Brown and John Meroll. George Dennett must not be married to Elizabeth Farr yet in this will, correct? Pam

A well known Indian fighter. Bought land in 1756 from Ephraim Powers in Stow. Both Ephraim and Stephen bought land in Stow in 1763. Stephen is said to be a native of Northampton, Massachusetts according to his ggranddaugther, Betsy (Farr) Ingraham. According to Betsy's aunt Molly Farr, he had a large muscular frame. He was a very good looking, agreeable old gentleman. His death was instantaneous. He was quietly smoking his pipe; his hands were seen to drop; his wife stepped up at the instant and sustained him from falling, but he had ceased to breathe. His wife survived him a few years. She died as suddenly as he had done. While drawing water at the well she fell, and immediately expired. Their same suddenness of death has occurred many times in the lives of their children and descendants.
