General Notes: Husband - Robert Rose, The Immigrant

Robert ROSE was born in 1594.(7486) (7487)(7488) He emigrated on 12 Nov 1634 to Massachusetts Bay Colony. (7489)(7490) (7491) Robert came aboard the "Francis" with his wife Margery and 8 children. It left Ipswich, Suffolk , England late in April 1634. He moved after 12 Nov 1634 to Watertown, Middlesex, MA. (7492) It is "quite probable" that Robert Rose settled first in Watertown, MA. There were several Watertown families that soon after removed to Whethersfield, CT. He moved before 1635 to Wethersfield, Connecticut Colony. (7493) Whethersfield is the oldest town in CT. It was briefly called Watertown, CT, named after the town in MA from where its first settlers came in 1634, but the name was changed to Whethersfield in 1635. This was truly a wilderness in 1635. The settlers were under constant fear of attack from Indians. He served as a soldier about 1637 in Pequot Indian War (1637).(7494) He was Constable, member of various town committees between 1639 and 1640 in Wethersfield, Connecticut Colony.(7495) (7496)(7497) Robert was on the following committees:
1639: viewed lands for settlement at what is now Farmington
1640: recommended improvements for cultivation and the keeping of cattle. He purchased 20 acres of land (he now had 40). in 1640 in Wethersfield, Connecticut Colony.(7498) He resided southeast side of Broad Street between 1640 and 1650 in Wethersfield, Connecticut Colony. (7499) Robert was one of the largest owners of "adventurers lands." He was Representative, Deputy to General Court in Hartford between 1641 and 1643 in Wethersfield, Connecticut Colony. (7500)(7501) (7502) He served several times as deputy during this short period, but not consecutively. He served as Representative consecutively. He appeared in court in 1643 in Wethersfield, Connecticut Colony. (7503) Robert Rose was one of several residents of the town who took issue with Rev. Henry Smith, who they accused of something (unclear) and signed a declaration against him. The matter was taken to the General Court, which found for the minister and not the residents. The court fined Robert Rose and the other dissenters 40 shillings. Robert chose to moved to Totoket (later Branford) the following year. He moved about 1644 to Totoket (Branford), New Haven Colony.(7504) (7505) He appeared in court between 1644 and 1655 in Branford, New Haven Colony.(7506) During this period, Robert Rose appeared in court 8 times. In most of these cases, the town records are not very enlightening as to the nature of the offenses:
In 1644, he was a defendant against Nathaniel Foote and had to pay damages and court costs.
In 1646, he was a plaintiff against Robins and was awarded 10 damages and court costs.
In 1648, he was fined 20 shillings for an unspecified misdemeanor, but at the same court, Enouch Buck was fined 10 shillings for irregular speeches made under oath against Robert Rose.
In 1653 and 1654, Rose appeared in court 4 times regarding the matter of a bull. Robins (again) entered an action against Thomas Blachly for taking his bull without permission and allowing it to die. Blachly had been hired by the town to breed a bull with some cows, but before the bull completed his mission, it got stuck in some mud and died, and so the townspeople refused to pay the fee. Blachly testified that a son of Robert Rose had taken the bull without permission. Rose denied this and claimed that Robins sold him and Goodman Edwards the services of the bull for 20 shillings plus an agreement to feed and pasture a steer for a summer. Witnesses submitted affidavits to this affect and John Russell testified that "he heard Mr. Robins say that he let the bull to Goodman Rose of Totoket, but because the bull was carelessly lost, he would not make the said Goodman Rose pay for him." The town argued that it was Robins who was negligent and bore the responsibility for the death of his bull but Robin's lawyer argued that it was the town that was negligent. Robert Abbott testified that the town took adequate care by allowing the bull to run with "dry cattle" during a season that was not swampy. The court's ruling didn't please anyone. The town was ordered to reimburse Robins 20 shillings for the services of the bull and 10 for summering the steer (to which the townspeople reluctantly agreed) but Robins was not reimbursed for the loss of a bull.
In 1655, he was defendant with Josiah Ward, accused of pulling down a fence. The verdict is not known. He moved before 1648 to Stratford, Fairfield, CT. (7507) He resided 3 acres upon which was bulit a dwelling in 1663 in Branford, New Haven Colony. (7508) Robert was one of the original proprietors of Branford. The dwelling was later appraised at 40 . This was one of the most valuable in town. Robert Rose also had one of the three greatest acreages of land of any man in town. He had become a wealthy man. he owed 10 cows and 60 hordes. He is believed to have regularly given his Sunday milking tot he poor. He signed a will on 25 Aug 1664 in Branford, New Haven, CT. (7509)(7510) He died between 25 Aug 1664 and 4 Apr 1665 in Branford, New Haven, CT. (7511)(7512) (7513) On this date, his will was presented in court. He left, according to his inventory, 826 (wealthiest man in town) includes house & land (260), 2 bulls and furniture on 4 Apr 1665 in Branford, New Haven, CT. (7514)(7515) The Genealogist Colonel George W.. Page claims the estate was worth a bit less at 616 , but he nevertheless described Robert Rose as "the wealthiest man in town." who died in 1665, was valued at 616:17:00 ." He was a Fence viewer, collector of taxes, and estate appraiser in Wethersfield, Connecticut Colony.(7516)



However, both Savage[S5] and Coldham's Complete Book of Emigrants[S13] quote the following as landing in New England on 30APR1634: "Passengers from Ipswich by the Francis of Ipswich, Mr John Cutting, bound for New England: Robert Rose 40 and Margery his wife 40, John Rose 15, Robert Rose 15, Elizabeth Rose 13, Mary Rose 11, Samuell Rose 9, Sarah Rose 7, Danyell Rose 3, Darcas Rose 2".[S19]

The History of Ancient Wethersfield by Sherman W. Adams and Henry R. Stiles (pub orig 1904), Vol. 1, pp27-29 & p72 (facsimile copy pub New Hampshire Publ Co., Somersworth, in collaboration with the Wethersfield Historical Soc, 1974) - info suppl Don Blauvelt.
"Robert Rose, who left Ipswich, England in April 1634, probably coming directly to Wethersfield, CT. He was a fellow passenger with several Watertown families, and it is not clearly ascertained, says Bond, 'that this family settled in Watertown.'(MA) His sons Robert and John were with him. He was one of the largest original holders of 'adventurers lands.' His homestead was on the east side of Broad Street, between Lieut.Seeley's and John Clarke's. He became one of the first settlers of Totoket (Branford) in 1644. His son Robert remained in Wethersfield, where...his descendants have been numerous." Fuller details on Robert's residence in Wethersfield, and his serving in the Pequot War, are given in the separate Note on the Wethersfield plantation which follows below. This also refers to the fact that in the list of original planters at Milford, CT, Atwater [S66] identifies Edward as coming from Wethersfield as well.

Elizabeth's father Robert left her 20 pounds in his will but, unfortunately, did not refer to her by her married surname.[S32]. The will was made in Branford dated 25AUG1664. It is said that Elizabeth possibly died 02SEP1634 at Branford though this has not been corroborated [S69]. Admittedly, Edward of Roxbury's will dated 02SEP1670 makes a bequest to "my daughter-in-law my son Edward Riggs his wife" without mentioning her christian name, but no evidence has yet been found to prove Edward's first wife died and that he re-married.

Nevertheless, corroborating evidence that Edward married Elizabeth ROSE is provided by the will of Lt.Samuel Rose, Elizabeth's brother. In it, he left a cash bequest to his "cousin" Phebee Day (relationships were described far more loosely in those days, and cousin often referred to a more remote relative). Edward and Elizabeth's daughter Mary, who married a George Day, had a son Paul Day; he in turn had married a Phebee Brown,[S32] thus making Phebee Day Samuel's great-niece. When Samuel Rose made his will, he was living in Newark, NJ [S32], the settlement that Edward had helped to establish.
