CANFIELD Sergeant Thomas Canfield,
the immigrant ancestor, was
born in England. His surname
Canfield is also spelled Camfield and
Campfield. He was early at Milford, Connecticut,
but not among the first settlers, although
coming as early as 1647 from New
Haven, where he first located and had a grant
of three acres for a home lot. He was made
freeman in 1669; was representative to the
general court from Milford in 1673-74-76;
sergeant of the train band, May, 1669; and
deputy to the general assembly, 1674-76. He
was admitted to the church in 1657, and he
was taxed in 1686. He died at Milford between
February 23, 1687-88, and August 22,
1689. His will was dated February 23, 1687.

There is some confusion that this will might be for his
son Thomas. ?????

Sons Thomas and Jeremiah are listed as original proprietors
of New Milford, CT in 1727. Lots 40 and 99 respectively.

He bought two hundred and thirty acres of
land, October 20, 1683, near Pettasomscott, of

was Deacon

sometimes said to be father of Sarah Peck who married
Joseph Benton. Sources conflict - some say she was a Peck by marriage though;
her maiden name was WATERS. Others say, his first wife was Martha Peck, his
second Sarah Waters. I have that Martha married John Cornwall. One source says
Paul Peck left 5 pounds to Joseph Benton in his will.

PECK Deacon Paul Peck. immigrant ancestor
of this family, was born, we
are told, in county Essex, England,
in 1608. He came to Boston in 1635 on the
ship "Defence" and remained in Boston and
vicinity until 1636, when he went with Rev.
Thomas Hooker and his party to Hartford
and became one of the founders of that city
and the state of Connecticut. He was a proprietor
of Hartford in 1639 and became a
leading citizen. His home was on what is
now Washington street not far from the state
capitol. He was deacon of the church from
1681 until his death, December 23, 1695. His
will, dated June 25, 1695, was proved January
15, 1695-96. His inventory amounted to five
hundred and thirty-six pounds five shillings.
He bequeathed to his wife Martha; children:
Paul. Joseph. Martha Cornwall, Mary Andrew,
Sarah Clark, Elizabeth How: grandsons:
Paul and Henry Peck; son-in-law, John
Shepherd; granddaughter. Ruth Beach; son-in-law,
John Bouton.

645 from Cairo Evening Citizen, Friday, 24 Oct 1902:
John A. Sammons received a message from Thebes announcing the death of his stepmother, Mrs. Emily Sammons, last night. She was the widow of George W. Sammons, deceased, and own mother of Joel D. Sammons. She was the daughter of Rev. William Bracken, a well-known Baptist minister. She must have taken sick very suddenly as he was not aware of her illness. She was about 69 years of age.
