(ICH: see Felix Carter's will at bottom of this page)

Soon after Christopher's marriage to Julian they moved to Banbury, England the principal town of the neighborhood about seven miles south of Calydon. When Julian's father Felix Carter died in 1619, Christopher and Julian moved back to Claydon most likely to care for Julian's widowed mother.
Julian (Carter) Boreman was a favorite, being the one chosen to care for her mother in her declining years. she was the residuary legatee of her mother, and received a special legacy from her youngest brother, Richard Carter. she was evidently a woman of intelligence and unusual graces of character. It was through a letter written by her to her son, Samuel Boreman in New England that the English ancestry and home of the Boardman family were discovered.

Samuel Boreman lived for a time with his parents at Claydon, England a village near Banbury where his early life was spent. Samuel was the emigrant ancestor of our Boardman family in New England. He first appears as a settler in New England in Ipswich, MA. He may have come on the ship "New Supply" as a passenger with the same name was aboard this vessel in April 1638. His stay in Ipswich was not long as in 1641 he sold his property in Ipswich and moved to Wethersfield, Hartford, CT. In Wethersfield, Samuel was an extensive land owner, having purchased 55 pieces of land in Wethersfield amounting to 755 acres. Mr. Borman received large grants of land at Wethersfield both from the Town and also from the Indians, by each of whom he seems to have been greatly trusted and respected. A portion of the land (30 acres) which he had from the Town, Jan., 2. 1649, was at the South end of the present Rocky Hill, being the first piece of land at that end of the Town granted to a private individual. It furnished great quantities of saplings, suitable for the making of pipe staves then a very important industry in the infant colonies, and as Samuel was a cooper by trade, it may have been one of the inducements which led him to leave MA. where the supply was rapidly being exhausted.
Hall Ancestry by Charles S. Hall 1896
Mr. Boreman died April, 1673, leaving no will. His estate, the inventory of which was taken May 2, 1673, amounted to about seven hundred and forty-three pounds, and was divided between his wife and ten children. His widow survived him more than eleven years and died August 3, 1684, at the age of about sixty-one years. The inventory of her property amounted to 277 pounds. At the foot of the inventory, the appraisers of the estate, Samuel Talcott and Jeame Treat, have given the names of the eight surviving children of Mrs. Boreman entitled to share in the distribution, and among them is the name "Mrs. Mary Robbins," the only one of the daughters married at that time.
Mary Betts the wife of Samuel Boreman was living in Claydon in 1627, but afterwards emigrated to New England with her mother, the widow Mary Betts.

Scarcely had John Griswold established himself as the miller of the town when suddenly he departed this life, Dec. 24, 1719. In 1724 the town by a committee, laid out over eighty acres of land to his heirs in fulfillment of the agreement with him. This land, lying on the east side of the Housatonic, east of the Long Lot, or a little northeast, and running back to Town Brook, was purchased by Roger Brownson, most, if not all of it, and constituted a considerable portion of his farm. Mr. Griswold's widow, Mabel, was the sister of Rev. Daniel Boardman. She married 2d Josiah Nichols of Danbury, but had several children by her first husband.
