Note*"Dr Nathaniel’s will was signed at Greenwich CT 30 Aug. 1737 and probated 7 Nov. 1738. The substantive provisions are best quoted directly: 'to wife Marget 1/3 of all of my movable estate forever and all my lands excepting ye right and lott which I bought of John Marshall Jr. and likewise my now dwelling house to her my sd loving wife all which above
premises unto her my sd wife during ye term of time she remains my widow and at her decease or marriage then my sd house and lands to return to my loving sons Roger and Gabriel Wordens their heirs and assigns forever to be equally divided between them; to son Daniel Worden all that right and lot that I bought of John Marshall Jr. of Greenwich by reason lot makes up his double portion; to son Nathaniel Worden 5 s by reason I have already gave his portion to him; to son Jobe Worden ye sum of five s by reason I have already gave his portion to him; to daughter Elizabeth wife of Jonath Merritt 5 s by reason I have already gave her portion to her; to daughter Thankful wife of Sam Worden 5 s by reason I have already gave her portion to her; the island now known as Capts island be sold and ye money of ye purchase to be equally divided between my daughters Hopestill and Marget Wordens.'

"The reference to “his double portion” for Daniel is explained by the practice of awarding equal shares to all children except the eldest son, and two equal shares to him. There is no guarantee in the language of the will that there were no further living children, nor any grandchildren from deceased children. However, the tenor of the language implies this, in that four children were given a token five shillings each, just to be recognized in the will, having already received their meaningful shares. This too was common practice.

"Samuel Worden was baptized 1 June 1718 at Stratford CT, in his own house, being very ill. Whereas Dr. Nathaniel resided at Stratford at this time, it has reasonably been assumed that Samuel was a son who died in infancy. Another son is missing from the will, namely John. Son Daniel was born 22 Mar 1707 at Little Compton RI, and he along with Dr. Nathaniel, Margaret, and John were baptized there 5 June 1707. Thus John was older than Daniel, and with Daniel the eldest son in 1737, John had died by then, evidently without issue."2 
Birth*Dr. Nathaniel Worden was born about 1677 in Yarmouth, Barnstable, Massachusetts. 
Marriage*He married Margaret Unknown
Death*Dr. Nathaniel Worden died in 1741 in Greenwich, Fairfield, Connecticut.3
