    excerpt from TIMOTHY STANLEY.
    Born in England; (he and brother Thomas Stanley) came to New England in 1634, and to Hartford in 1636. In the divisions of lands among the first settlers, "according to the proportions payed for the purchase of sayd lands," he had two parcels allotted to him, of 32 and 36 acres, making 68 in all, which was much above the average. Out of 95 names of the planters who thus received lands, only 19 had more than he, while 116 received less. The two highest allotments were made to John Haynes and George Wyllys, of 200 acres each. This indicates, what is apparent from other considerations, that he was one of the wealthier men of the settlement, implying corresponding position in his English home. (Thomas Stanley would likewise be one of the wealthier men.)

    Subsequently he purchased also land and howsing at the newer settlement over the mountain on the west, called probably from the fine meadows on the Tunxis river "Farmingtown," valued at his death at forty pounds, making a total of real estate of ?167.

    Here Timothy Stanley lived in honor and industry thirteen years, till April, 1648. The little niece Ruth, whom he had adopted on the death of her father (John), grew up to be a girl of sixteen, when, with her brother John (being raised by Thomas Stanley), who was barely four years older, she was married on the same day, December 5, 1645, and went to make a new home in Farmington, which was settled that year, possibly on the lands which their uncle (Thomas) purchased for them there. In those colonial days, early marriages were the rule rather than the exception. There was so much to be done in planting and subduing the wilderness that no time must be lost in getting about it.

    (3d) 1634, 22 Feb: The families of brothers John, Timothy and Thomas STANLEY traveled on the ship "Elizabeth & Dorcas" from England to Boston, MA. The ship and nine others were held from sailing while in the River Thames because an Anglican Bishop was concerned about so many "dissenters" going to Boston at one time. All the men took a loyalty oath, a bond was posted and the ships were released on 28 Feb 1634.
    (3d) The "Elizabeth & Dorcas" hit a rock in the Scilly Islands and had a rough passage. Gov. WINTHROP noted in his journal that the ship had not been properly reprovisioned after being detained in London, which coupled with the long passage made for starvation and probably scurvy, and six passengers died, including John STANLEY.
    (3d) 1634, late Jun or early Jul: The ship arrived in Boston, MA. Upon their arrival, Timothy and Thomas, with the children of the deceased John STANLEY, went with their fellow voyagers to make their homes in "Newe Town", now Cambridge, MA. (5) 1634, May: Came to New England with wife Elizabeth and son Timothy. Of Cambridge [MA].
    (3e) 1634[/5], 3 Mar: At a court held at Newe Towne. "Whereas John STANLEY dyed intestate, in the way to Newe England, & lefte three children vndisposed of, the youngest whereof is since deceased, haveing also lefte and estate of cxvj in goods & chattels, &c., it is therefore ordered, with the consent of Thomas STANLEY, brother to the said John, disceased, that hee shall have forthwith the same of 1viij of the said estate putt into his hands; inconsideracon whereof, the said Thomas STANLEY shall educate & bring vpp John STANLEY, sonne of John STANLEY, disceased, finding him meate, drinke, & app'ell, till he shall accomplishe the age of xxi yeares, & att the end of the said terme shall giue vnto the said John STANLEY the some of ffifty pounds." A similar provision was made for "Tymothy STANLEY, another brother of the afores John STANLEY, disceased," to educate & bring up "Rueth STANLEY, daughter of the afores John STANLEY, disceased," until she attained the age of 21, at which time, or on the day of her marriage, she was to be paid thirty pounds.


    (Timothy Stanley died Apr 1848.)

    The distribution of the estate by the Court the 7th December, 1648, is as followeth: To the two eldest daughters 50l out of the mouables. To the eldest sonn Calib, the howses & lands in Hartford at the age of 21 years: hee paying to the youngest daughter if shee liues 30l. To the youngest sonn Isaack, after the decease of his mother, the land & howsing at Farmington.

    These presents witnesse that we Thomas Portter & Lois Porter haue fully receiued of o'r brother Caleb Standly of Hartford that portion that was alotted or distributed to Lois by the Honored Court as her portion due to her father Timothy Standly his estate, and we doe by these presents fully acquitt, exoneratt & discharge our sayd brother Caleb Standly, his heirs executors & administrators of all debts, dues, & demands whatsoeuer dew from him the sayd Caleb Standly by vertue of any guift or distribution made of the estate of o'r Honoured Father Timothy Standly deceased, as witnesse o'r handds this first day of December in the year of o'r Lord one thousand six hundred & seuenty.
