A MONOGRAPH OF THE DESCENT OF THE FAMILY OF BEEBE, from the earliest known immigrant - John, of Broughton, England, 1650, compiled and edited by Clarence Beebe, 150 Nassau Street, New York, page 11.
    John Beebe, son of John, of New London, Conn., was baptized in Broughton, England, November 4th, 1628. He married Abigail Yorke (born about 1638), daughter of James Yorke, of Stonington, Conn., before December, 1660, probably not long before. She died March 9, 1725. Her father may have been the James Yorke, aged 21, who sailed from England June 20, 1635, in the ship "Philip Richard", Morgan, master. He was Sergeant of the Train-Band for twenty years, and in summer of 1676 we find Ensign John Beebe, of New London, in the company of Capt. George Denison, which was raised in New London county, for the Indian War. He was a Lieutenant in 1690. In a dispute between the people of New London and those of Lyme, over the right to mow grass on debatable land, the New London men approached, and swinging they scythes began to mow, when the Lyme men and the constable drew nigh, the latter with a warrant for the apprehension of Ensign Minor, which he began to read, when Sergeant Beebe interrupted him, crying out, "We care not a straw for your paper." A melee followed, but it was terminated without serious injury to eather party.
    In 1671/2 he was one with many others in New London presented to the Court "for an attempt to drive Mr. Matthew Griswold and Lieut. William Waller by violence off their lands, resistance to authority and assault." He probably had been for some time in the plantation of New London, in the service of John Winthrop, the founder. He came to New England in 1650, and among the lands granted to him were one acre on Sept. 4th, 1651. Five acres, December and, the same year, and lots of ten, seven and six acres March 5th the next year. Other grants came later on. He deeded thirty-one acres to his son, Benjamin, 1707, and was perhaps deceased by April 28th, 1714, when the same deed was recorded. In a deed dated 1660, he was described as a Leather Dresser.
    He is mentioned as being among the grantees of planters of the Town of New London, Conn., at the flood time of increase, 1651. House lots were given him in the Spring of the year. He had a small portion of land laid out to him in Poquiogh, and also at Fog Plain, about two miles out. In 1652 he was granted by the General Court, in Captain George Denison's Company in New London county, over the 68 men raised in that county May 11, 1676, for the standing army, and a part of the 350 men raised in the Colony of Connecticut. In June, 1676, during King Phillips War, he went on several military expeditions against the Indians, to Rhode Island, to Taunton and beyond Westfield, on the road to Albany. On one of these expeditions he went up the Connecticut River by water to Northampton, and from there joined Major Talcot with supplies, of which the army was in prime need. He was living in New London, January 21, 1707/8.

    Thomas Beebe, son of John was born in Broughton, Northampshire, England, where he was baptized June 23rd, 1633. He was a twin brother with Samuel. He probably accompanied his brother to New England, in 1650, although supposed to have come to New London, Conn., with the so-called Eastern or Cape Ann Company from Marshfield and Gloucester, Mass., with their pastor, Rev. Mr. Blinman, who was originally from Chepstowe, Monmouthshire, England.
    Land was granted him in New London, Conn., Sept. 1, 1651, and at several times afterwards. His wife was Millicent, daughter of William Addis. She had had two husbands previously. William Southmayd, and William Ash, at Gloucester, and had moved to New London about 1650. "She married Thomas Beebe, certainly before 1663, for one of her daughters, by him, was married in 1680.
     Thomas Beebe had a barque of from 12 to 20 tons, named Speedwell, built for him by Mould & Coit, about 1669-1664. He was made a freeman of the Colony in 1666, and was a committee of seven to fortify New London against King Philip in 1675. In February, 1677, he acted on a building committee to procure timber for a new Meeting House, and in November, 1683, he was one of a committee in behalf of the town, to send a letter by Captain Winthrop to Mrssrs. Mather and Willard, ministers at Boston, for advice and counsel in "attayning" a minister for the town. In 1690 he was appointed to assign seats in the church and the same year succeeded his brother, John, as Sergeant. He died early in 1690.

    Samuel Beebe, son of John was twin brother to Thomas, and baptized with him at Broughton, England, 23rd June 1633. He came to New England in 1650 and settled at New London, Conn., where land was granted him December 2, 1651, as well as several times afterwards. In 1708 he testified that he and his brother made the fence to Mr. Winthrop's ox-pasture "sixty years since." This expression must be understood to mean about sixty years as he could not have been in New London earlier than the summer of 1650. The same or a greater inexactness characterized his statements as given by Miss Caulkins, in her History of New London, that his age was 77 in the year 1698, for his years at that time were actually 65.
     Miss Caulkins assigns him as wife, first Agness, daughter of William Keeney, and second, Mary. Where she speaks of William Keeney, she says his daughter Mary married Samuel Beebe, now resident of Colchester, and relict of Samuel Beebe, late of New London, deceased, and conveyed to Samuel Fox, of New London a valuable sum of money, land in New London, "originally granted to William Keeney."
    He probably moved to Plum Island and died there early in 1712 as administration was granted on his estate, April 6th, 1712, to his widow, Mary, and his son, Samuel of Southold, Long Island.

Samuel married Agnes Mary KENNEY, daughter of William KINNEY and Agnes DOUGLASS. Agnes was adopted 23 Jun 1633 in England . She died 9 May 1725 in New London, New London Co., Connecticut and was buried 10 May 1725.
