  • Notes 
    • (I) Thomas Buckingham, immigrant ancestor,
      was one of the company to which Eaton
      and Hopkins, London merchants, and the two
      ministers, Davenport and Prudden, belonged.
      The company came from London in two ships,
      one of which was the "Hector," and arrived
      at Boston, in New England, June 26, 1637.
      They settled in New Haven, Connecticut, in
      1638. Thomas Buckingham was among the
      list of planters, having at that time four persons
      in his family, and an estate of sixty
      pounds (his share in the enterprise), and he
      received land in the first division. He removed
      to Milford, Connecticut, in 1639, and
      was one of the company of which Peter Prudden
      was pastor. He was one of the seven
      charter members of the church, which was organized
      at New Haven, August 22, 1639. His
      name is fifth on the list of free planters in
      Milford, November 29, 1639. His home lot of
      three acres was a little above the present location
      of the Second Congregational Church, to
      the right, on the corner where the old Bryan
      house stood in 1849, and was then owned by
      descendants on the mother's side. His will
      was made September 19, 1657. He married
      (first) in England, Hannah (???), who
      joined the New Haven church, February 9,
      1639. He married (second) Ann (???), who
      died at Milford in 1687. Children of first
      wife: Hannah, born in England, 1632;
      Daniel, born in England, 1636; Samuel, baptized
      June 13, 1641; Mary, baptized March 27,
      1643; Thomas, mentioned below.
