ANCESTRY

How do you know where you're going if you don't know where you're coming from?

In an attempt to become closer with our ancestors, we began a journey that involved hundreds of hours of research but ended up being beyond rewarding. We began tracking our family lineage and with each and every discovery we felt more connected. From photos of great-great grandparents to marriage records of great-great-great grandparents, we have realized this: family is more than people, it is connection.  We finally feel connected on a deeper level and we plan to use these connections to guide our travels. Stephanie found out she is half German and half English. Zach is English, Dutch, Welsh, and German. So we are excited more than ever to journey to these DESTINATIONS of our ancestors.

Below are our 8 family trees (4 for Steph plus 4 for Zach). Most of our research was done using Ancestry.com and with the help of family. If you'd like this information in document form (including the appendices with historical documents/photos) please email us at info@destinationdorworth.com with the subject "Family Tree Inquiry". To learn how to use ancestry to guide your travels, read our blog post here.

Land west of Blind Brook and east of Stonybrook called Budd's Neck. Rye was included in limits of the Colony of Connecticut on May 30, 1663. On September 5, 1664, New Netherlands surrendered and became the Province of New York.

FRANCIS PURDY immigrated from England and arrived to Connecticut in 1632. He was 1st Regiment Connecticut Heavy Artillery in the Union for the Civil War.

MARY ELIZABETH BRUNDAGE (BRUNDISH) later re-married JOHN HOIT/HOYT (from Nova Scotia).

Excerpt from “The Purdy Family History” Book:

The Brundish's immigrated in 1633 and lived at Salem, Mass., then Watertown, Mass. and then Fairfield, Connecticut In one write-up it states that "John is to have been killed by Indians, in another it states that he took his own 'lyfe'." After John's death, Rachael married Anthony Wilson of Fairfield, Connecticut

Mary was the granddaughter of James Hubbard and Naomi Cook of Mendelsham, Suffolk, England. (Hubbard History by Harlan Page Hubbard, N. Y. 1895).

After Francis Purdy died Mary married John Hoit and moved to Rye which was then in Connecticut John Hoit was the son of Simon Hoit, the ancestor of several Hoit families in Nova Scotia.

In "One Thousand Years of Hubbard History - 1866-1895", by Harlan Page Hubbard, N. Y. 1895 (page 53) he states:

"James and Naomi (Cook) Hubbard, of Mendelsham, Suffolk, England, were the parents of ten children - Benjamin, James, Rachel, Samuel came to America..... Rachel married John Brundish, of Ipswich, Suffolk, England, and came to New England in 1633. They lived in Salem, Mass., Wethersfield, Connecticut and Fairfield, Connecticut and had children.

"Mary, born in Ipswich, England, in 1628, married Francis Purdy, of Fairfield, Conn." If the date of 1628 is correct for Mary's birth, she would have been only 14 years old in 1642. If married in 1639, when Francis Purdy first appeared at Fairfield, she would have been only 11 or 12.

On January 6, 1644/45, Francis Purdy and his wife, Mary Purdy, were witnesses to the will of their neighbor, William Frost ("Families of Old Fairfield", O. L. Jacobus, Page 211, Vol. 1).
