Generation No. 4

5.  ANDREW4 SANFORD (EZEKIEL3, THOMAS2, RICHARD1) was born 1617 in Stanstead Mountfitchet, Essex, England, and died 1684 in Milford, New Haven, CT.  He married (1) SARAH GIBBARD.    He married (2) MARY. 

 

Notes for ANDREW SANFORD:

1.  Andrew Sanford (Ezechiel, Thomas, Richard) bapt Nov 1, 1617, Stanstad Mountfichet, Essex Co., Eng.  (See "Medieval Origins of the Sanfords" pg. 13) d. 1684, Milford, Ct; m. (1) Mary____, d. 1662; m. (2) Sarah, dau. of Wm. Gibbard of New Haven, Ct.  Her mother was a daughter of Edmund Tapp of Milford, and sister to the wife of Gov. Robert Treat.

 

The first record of him is in Hartford in 1651.  His residence was on whatis now lot 74 on Burr St.  On May 21, 1657, he was made a Freeman and was a Chimney Viewer in June, 1662.  It is very lkely that he was in Hartford and married as early as 1638 and the first two children born soon thereafter.  The records state that Mary, his second child of age in 1667.

 

He and his wife certainly got into serious trouble in Hartford.  They were both indicted for withcraft or for holding publc meetings other than those prescribed by the elders or for dealing with "Sathan".  The records show that he was "accused" June 6, 1662,and very soon after tried in court by jury; that the verdict was, "some thought guilty, some strongly suspected," result was a disagreement.

 

It further appears that the wife Mary was indicted June 13, 1662, and soon tried, whether with her husband has not been learned.  The verdict in her case, it is certain, was "Guilty" which of course, meant execution.  The actual record of the execution has not been found, but it is morally certain that she was executed.  John M. Taylor in his "Witchcraft Delusion in Colonial Connecticut" states she was executed.  In the preparation of that work, as he states in a letter to Mr F A Sanford, No. 303 in this family, of Nov. 14, 1910, (to whom the author is indebted for assistance in matter), he (Taylor) had access to the notes of the late Dr Charles J Hoadley who made an exhaustive search some years since on the subject of withcraft.  His volume of memoranda is now held by Mr George Hoadley of New Haven.  For trial of Mrd Sanford see pg 151.  Andrew's trial will be found in the same volume.  See also records of "Particular Court" vol 2, pg. 174-5, on file in office of Secretary of State and State Librarian, Hartford, CT.

 

The fact, too that Mr Sanford not long after these trials married again goes to show that his first wife died.

 

A recent article (1910) in the New England Historical Magazine refers to the Sanfords of Hartford, CT, as being all "All Quakers".  In and under the Hartford Colonial law Quakers were classed as and with heretics.  Quite a good many Quakers and Heretics were executed in New England in Colonial times.  So we need not look upon the case of Mary Sanford as a strange one.

 

On going to Milford in 1667 he and his second wife accepted the situatiion and joined the church, Mar 4, 1671.  Mr Sanford left a will dated Sept 6, 1684.  The will mentions eldest son Andrew, son Ezekiel, eldest daughter Mary, daughter Hannah, "three younger ones".  "If any of these die their portions to the remaining daughters"  (New Haven Pro. Rec Book 1, p 130)
