New sketches: Early New England Families, 1641-1700

Henry Bond’s A map of the original allotments of land and the ancient topography of Watertown (proper) which includes parcels of land owned by William Parry

Today we’ve updated Early New England Families, 1641-1700, adding two new sketches, profiling Richard Hassell (m. 1643) and William Parry (m.1641).

Richard Hassell lived with his wife Joan in Cambridge, Billerica, and Dunstable. They had three children. William Parry lived in Watertown with his wife Anne. They had six children.

Early New England Families, 1641-1700 is written by Alicia Crane Williams. This study project highlights heads of families mentioned in Torrey’s New England Marriages to 1700. Learn more about this project, through one of Alicia Crane Williams’ most recent Vita Brevis posts on the subject.

We’d like to thank Sam Sturgis for his help adding these sketches to our database.
