Connecticut Merrill's

John(2), Nathaniel(1). John Merrill, the second son of Nathaniel(1) Merrill left Newbury around the age of fifteen to live with his uncle, Gregory Wilterton(Wolterton, Winterton). Savage, in his "Genealogical Dictionary" said that Gregory Wilterton "had a good estate, large tan works and no children." Gregory Wilterton made his will 17 jul 1674, and died soon after, leaving legacies to a number of persons, including relatives in Ipswich, Suffolk Co., England. Savage adds: "Most of his estate was given to John Merrill, because he had adopted him." The same statement of adoption is repeated in the "Memorial History of Hartford, County. The facts lend to plauibility to the theory that Gregory Wilterton was a brother of Susanna Merrill, Nathaniel(1) Merrill's wife.

Notes for JOHN *MERRILL: From "A Merrill Memorial" by Samuel Merrill, Cambridge, MA, 1917-1928

John(2) Merrill (Nathaniel(1) one of the older sons of Nathaniel went to Hartford, CT before 1657, while still a minor and it is said was adopted by Gregory Wilterton. Savage, in his "Genealogical Dictionary" said that Gregory Wilterton "had good estate, large tan works, and no children." Gregory Wilterton made his will 17 Jul 1674, and died soon after, leaving legacies to a number of persons, including relatives in Ipswich, England. Savage adds: "Most of his estate was given to John Merrills, because he hand adopted him." The same statement of adoption is repeated in the "Memorial History of Hartford County."

These facts lend plausibility to the theory that Gregory Wilterton was a brother of Susanna Merrill. It was a long journey from Newbury to Hartford; means of communication were meagre, and both communities were in their infancy. It seems unlikely that John, as a very young man, would have made such a journey, seperating himself from a lifetime from home and kin, unless to make a home with other kin in the place where he went to live.

Addendum 1996:Baptismal records show that John was baptized on 16m 1635/36 in Lawford, Essex, Co., England.
