Hi Don,
Hoping to find all is well with you.

I have received information on the Rood/Rude Family from Lee Swan who is also a descendant of the Rood/Rude Family. I would like to pass it along to you. Some of this information you probably have already from the book, Genealogical Dictionary of New England by Savage but the other information she received from the Trumbull, Co. Rec. 11 184 and you might want to sit down for this one.

The Rood-Rude Record Special Issue pg. 10

George Rood - The Rejected Child

George (2) Rood was the son of Thomas Rood, the emigrant, by his oldest daughter Sarah. It being the first case of incest proved in New England, by the admission of both Thomas and Sarah, he was tried and condemned to be hanged in New London, and Sarah was to be shipped.
Although, the "Colonial Records of Connecticut" edited by Trumbull have fairly full accounts of the trial, there is no account of the sad life lived by Sarah in New London, where she lived and reared her child, and where she died in 1714.
That George (2) Rood was rejected by the community is proved by his marriage to Hannah Bush, illegitimate daughter of Hannah Bush (*my notes-I think they meant Susannah Bush) who subsequently married one Thomas Hall, and said Thomas before the court for ravishing his step-daughter shortly before her marriage to George (2) Rood. The amazing thing about this case, which is unusual in colonial history (since subsequent incest cases were treated by English common law rather than Mosaic law, heard by a jury of 5 preachers) is the prominence attained by some of the descendants of this couple, both of whom had been rejected by their community. The family should make a good sociological study similar to those of the Edwards Family, the Jukes and the Kallikaks.
We have gathered together the available records for a ?-generation study of this family, only partially complete.

Sad isn't it? I often wondered when I read the write up in the Geneol. Dictionary of N.E. why they executed Thomas and whipped Sarah. I hated to be the bearer of bad news especially since you sent me so many good family connections. If you would like a photo copy of these papers that she sent, I will be happy to mail it to you.

Until next time.
