|My Loomis ancestors|
The following information on my early Loomis ancestors is summarized from the book "Loomis Family in America" and other sources.
01. Thomas Lummys, son of Laurent was born on April 12, 1507 in Thaxsted. He married Ann Stephen in 1535, daughter of Thomas Stephen. Thomas died on October 28, 1551 in Thaxsted.
02. John Lummys, son of Thomas and Ann was
born in January 1535 in Thaxsted. He married Kyrsten Pasfield in
1561. John died on April 12, 1567 in Thaxsted.
04. Joseph Loomis, son of John and Agnes was
born on August 24, 1590 in Braintree, Essex, England. He was a
woolen-draper. According to the source "The Descendants of Joseph
Loomis in America", her married Mary White on
June 30, 1614. Mary is the daughter of Robert White and Bridget Allgar.
Joseph and Mary had 8 children, all born in England, and came to America
with them. Several sources say he sailed from London, England 11 April 1638, on the
ship "Susan and Ellen," arriving in Boston, Mass. 17 July 1638.
Other sources claim he probably came to Windsor in the summer or autumn of
1639 in company with Rev. Ephraim Huet, who arrived at Windsor, Aug. 17,
1639. Records indicate he stayed about a year in Dorchester, Mass. Town
records of Windsor, Conn. show that on 2 Feb. 1640, he was granted 21
acres from the Plantation adjoining Farmington River on the west side of
the Conn. River. This acreage included the site of the first English
settlement made in Conn. Also there were several large tracts of land on
the east side of the Conn., partly from the town and partly
purchased. His house was near the mouth of the Farmington River on "The
Island." That area was called "the Island" because when
raining, the Connecticut River overflowed, causing it to temporarily
become an island. Their five sons were freeman--believed to mean
those who enjoy political liberty. Joseph died on November 25, 1658
07. Zachariah Loomis, son of John was born in November 1681 in Windsor, CT. He married Joanna Abell in 1707. Joanna is the daughter of Caleb Abell and Margaret Post and has royal ancestry. Zachariah and Joanna had 10 children. He died on April 6, 1751 in Lebanon, CT.
08. Zerviah Loomis, daughter of Zachariah and Joanna was born on September 2, 1724 in Lebanon, CT. She married Ebenezer Jones on December 4, 1745. They had 14 children. Zerviah died in 1808. I descend from their son Miles Jones who married Mehitable Adams.
