William Tyler (1644 - Abt 1692)

William Tyler was born 1644, and died Abt. 1692 in Milford, New Haven, CT.  He married Abigail Terrell  Abt. 1662 in Milford, New Haven, CT, daughter of Roger Terrell and Abigail Ufford.  She was born August 1644, and died 1693 in Milford, New Haven, CT.  Nothing is known about William Tyler's origin, other than he is said to be born in Milford, CT.  However, there is some reason to believe his family came from Devonshire, England. There is a family tradition that John Tyler had visited the family relatives in Devonshire England.

The Tyler's which I belong are called "the Wallingford" line.  According to Willard Irving Tyler Brigham (William Tyler Genealogy, Albany: The Brandon Printing Co., 1912), "The real home of this line is Wallingford, Connecticut where William's (Tyler, 1644 - abt 1692) sons William and John, the only males who had issue, removed early and left numerous descendants.  The first two generations of this family figure in New Haven, Milford, Derby, and Wallingford, all early settlements in the present New Haven County."
