Some Descendants of John BILL

Second Generation


4. Philip BILL (John ) was born 1620 in England. He died 8 Jul 1689 in Groton, New London Co., Connecticut.

THE BILL FAMILY MEMOIR, edited by Ledyard Bill, page 55 to 59..
    Philip Bill settled on the east side of the Thames River, in that portion of the township of New London that in 1705 was incorporated as the town of Groton. This name had been previously given by Winthrop, in honor of his birthplace in England; to this tract of "plantation" -- lying east of the Thames, and between it and the Poqunnoc River-- extending from the seashore back about three miles northward, being all included in the present town of Groton.
    Miss Caulkins says, in the HISTORY OF NEW LONDON, page 198, "Philip Bill settled near Robert Allyn and George Geer." which is believed by the writer to have to have been at or near Allyn's Point, the present terminus of the Norwich and Worchester Railroad. It is presumed that Robert Allyn's house was not far distant, and that this point of land on the Thames formed a portion of his farm, hence its name.
    No will of Philip has been found, though diligent searches have been made by the writer and others. He died July 8, 1689, of the fatal throat distemper, which prevailed that summer. His daughter, Margaret, died the same day, of the same desease. His widow, Hannah, afterwards married Samuel Bucknall or Buckland, of New London, and died in 1709. Children born in Massachusetts.
