Name: Amos Worden
Sex: M
Birth: Abt 1695 in Stonington,Connecticut
Note: AMOS WORDEN, the son of Isaac Worden and Rebekah , was born about 1695,
Note: probably in Stonington,
Note: Connecticut. He was a cordwainer (a leather worker) in Newport, Rhode
Note: Island in 1738 when he deeded his share of his father's estate to his
Note: brother William.
Note: Gilbert S. Bahn, writes (in Worden's Past), "If one reviews the record of
Note: the estates of the sons of (Dr.) Samuel Worden, one finds a single
Note: candidate in the line of Peter Worden of Yarmouth who may account for the
Note: first Wordens to appear near Pawling in Dutchess County, New York. This
Note: is Isaac's son Amos, who left no record concerning residence at Newport,
Note: Rhode Island after 1738, when, at Stonington, he deeded to his brother
Note: William his share of his father's lands. Amos was a cordwainer; Nathaniel
Note: of Dutchess County, New York was a cordwainer when he arrived there. I
Note: have already suggested that Thomas of Dutchess County was a son of
Note: Isaac's son Amos." Bahn also suggests that Thomas, Amos, Isaac, and
Note: Daniel were brothers. All four were on tax rolls around Pawling in the
Note: 1750s and 1760s.

Death: 1718 in Stonington,Connecticut
Note: On 18 September 1716, the Court appointed Isaac Worden, of Stonington,
Note: administrator of his father's estate after his stepmother, Frances,
Note: refused the responsibility--having been married to (Dr.) Samuel for less
Note: than one year. Isaac died intestate two years after his father, before
Note: fulfilling his duties as administrator. Isaac's widow Rebekah then
Note: fulfilled his responsibilities. Isaac's estate, since he did not leave a
Note: will, was not settled until after Rebekah's death (about 1735). Between
Note: 1735 and 1741, each of Isaac's children signed a quitclaim deed to their
Note: brother William, probably to settle the estate.

Name: Samuel Worden
Title: Dr.
Sex: M
Birth: Abt 1646 in Yarmouth,Barnstable,Massachusetts
Burial: Wequetequoc Cove Cemetery in Stonington
Note: Dr. SAMUEL WORDEN, the son of Peter Worden and Mary , was born in 1646 in
Note: Yarmouth, Massachusetts.
Note: He died on 26 August 1716 in Stonington, Connecticut at seventy-one years
Note: of age. He married (1) Hopestill Holley, the daughter of Joseph Holley,
Note: Sr. and Rose Allen, in 1665. She was born in 1646 and died on 13
Note: September 1715. he married (2) Frances West a few months after the death
Note: of his first wife, but he lived less than one year after the marriage.
Note: (Dr.) Samuel and his wife Hopestill are buried in the Wequetequoc Cove
Note: Cemetery in Stonington.
Note: Dr. Samuel was the first male Worden born in America. He was a prominent
Note: physician and became a large landowner in Massachusetts, Rhode Island,
Note: and Connecticut. On 06 June 1682, he requested permission to "take his
Note: freedom" (move to another town). He purchased his first land in Rhode
Note: Island in 1693. In 1695 he purchased 250 acres on what has become known
Note: as Worden's Pond from Benedict and Josiah Arnold. On 12 February 1697, he
Note: sold the 150 acre Worden farm in Yarmouth to Isaac Chapman for 250
Note: pounds, reserving "...one half akor of land...a buring place for my
Note: fathers posteretie fo rever lying for squere about the plase whear my
Note: father Werden was buried [the Worden Cemetery]... ." In 1709 he purchased
Note: land in Stonington, Connecticut near the Pawcatuck River. Upon his death,
Note: his widow, Frances, refused to administer his will, and the Court
Note: appointed his son Isaac Worden and james Rogers as administrators. Isaac
Note: died within two years, and his widow Rebekah fulfilled his obligations
Note: Samuel was born in Barnstable (now East Dennis), Massachusetts.
Note: In 1665, he married Hopestill Holley.
Note: In 1672 Samuel Werden was proposed for a freeman. In New England, a man
Note: attained the status of freeman either as the eldest son or by owning a
Note: freehold estate; and in every town there was a commission appointed to
Note: examine that freehold estate and make sure its title was clear.
Note: Sometime before 1693, Dr. Samuel bought land in Rhode Island, because in
Note: a deed registered there on 19 September 1693, Werden's Pond is called by
Note: his name. (Old N.K. Land Evidences, Volume 1, Page 223 in S.K. Townhouse.)
Note: On 8 July 1695, he bought land consisting of 250 acres from Benedict
Note: Arnold, one of the original purchasers of a tract of land in this
Note: "collony comonly called Pitticomcott." This was originally purchased by
Note: Benedict Arnold in 1658 and comprises the present towns of South Kingston
Note: and Narragansett.
Note: In 1696, Dr. Samuel sold his farm in the town of Yarmouth, Mass. to Isaac
Note: Chapman "except one half aker of land which I Samuel Werden except and
Note: reserve to myself and to my fathers posterity forever, lying square about
Note: the place where my father Werden was buried, out of the aforementioned
Note: farm, notwithstanding whatever is said above to the contrary, with free
Note: liberty of ingress and egress with horse or cart or foot from the common
Note: highway to same to have and to hold forever." He therefore preserved this
Note: land to all Wordens forever.
Note: In the Norwich town clerk's office, Oliver Newton Worden found this
Note: precious record of conjugal and filial affection: "September 13, 1715, it
Note: was to me that woeful day in which my dear and tender and loving wife
Note: departed this life and was buried on ye 27th." "8 November 1752, then ye
Note: above written was entered from an ancient writing, at ye desire of Mr.
Note: Thomas Werden Jr. by me - Isaac Huntington, T.C." A few months after
Note: Hopestill died, Dr. Samuel married Francis West. In Stonington,
Note: Connecticut 18 September 1716, "Francis Werden, widow and relique of
Note: Samuel Werden late of Stonington dec. refuseth to administer upon ye
Note: estate of her late husband, Samuel Werden dec. and desireth that adm. may
Note: be granted to Isaac Werden. Isaac Werden died in 1718 and his wife
Note: Rebekah became administer for both estates.

Name: Peter Worden
Sex: M
Birth: Abt 1576 in Clayton-le-Woods,Lancashire,England
Death: 1638 in Yarmouth,Barnstable,Massachusetts
Immigration: JUL 1623 on HMS Anne in Plymouth (settled in Lynn then Plymouth)
Note: PREFACE and HISTORY, below is written or compiled by Daniel Hogan
Note: (additional information can be found on his web page
Note: http://personal.mco.bellsouth.net/mco/h/o/hogans3/hogan1.htm):
Note: The name Worden (spelled Werden in ancient times) is a topographical
Note: name. It came from the fording place on the brook that forms the boundary
Note: between the Towns of Clayton and Leyland, Lancashire, England.
Note: This account of one line of descent from Peter Worden, who founded this
Note: line of the Worden family in America, is based on the following sources:
Note: Schunke, Marjorie W., A manuscript entitled "The Worden Family in Rhode
Note: Island."
Note: Bahn, Gilbert S., Oliver Norton Worden's Family. (An unpublished book).
Note: Worden, Oliver Norton, Some Records of Persons by the Name of Worden.
Note: Worden, Mrs. Pat, Wordens Past. A quarterly newsletter (required reading
Note: for researchers interested in the Worden family).
Note: In this account Amos Worden (5th Generation) is assumed to be the father
Note: of Thomas Worden because he is the only Worden in time and place capable
Note: of the act. This agrees with Bahn's latest conclusions (not those voiced
Note: in his unpublished book) but remains to be proven. Regardless, Thomas
Note: Worden is still the great grandson of (Dr.) Samuel Worden, and the line
Note: of descent is basically correct.
Note: The Worden family were occupying land in the Town of Clayton (now
Note: Clayton-le-Woods) Lancashire, England as early as 1190, according to
Note: Place Names of Lancashire, by Eilert Ekwall. The Cockersand Abbey land
Note: rental records indicate that Henry Werden was occupying land in the Town
Note: of Clayton in 1451. The earliest surviving Court Rolls of Clayton Manor
Note: (1574) contains the name William Werden and his son and heir, Robert
Note: Werden (William died that year). A William Werden was included in the
Note: Preston Guild Rolls of 1459, and Peter Werden and his son Peter Werden
Note: were on the Preston Guild Rolls as late as 1622. William Werden and his
Note: son Robert Werden were the grandfather and father of Peter Worden--the
Note: first of the Worden line in America.
Note: "Worden Origins," by George L. Bolton, which can be found in Volume VII,
Note: No. 3, through Volume VIII, No. 2, of Wordens Past, presents detailed
Note: documentation of the early Wordens of Clayton-le-Woods and the origin of
Note: the Family Name. Although the name Werden was not listed among the
Note: principal gentry of County Palatine and the Duchy of Lancashire, it was
Note: included in the list of those "who have arms but not residences."
Note: In a paper given on 22 and 23 April 1989 at Worden Hall, Worden Park,
Note: Leyland, England under the auspices of the University of Liverpool,
Note: George L. Bolton identifies the farm occupied by the Wordens as the
Note: parcel of land donated to the Cockersand Abbey by Gerald de Clayton
Note: between 1190 and 1210. In return the Cannons were to pray in perpetuity
Note: for the souls of the donors. Bolton states, "From the seventeenth century
Note: (and possibly before) to the nineteenth century the holding, with its
Note: farm house, was known as 'Werdens oth' Hole' or 'Werdens of the Sand
Note: Hole' because of its geological characteristics. By the turn of this
Note: century it had become Hole House Farm. The farm house, a nineteenth
Note: century rebuild, was demolished a few years ago for housing development."
Note: The Wordens rented the farm from the Cockersand Abbey for twelve pence
Note: per annum. The Abbey was dissolved about 1540. Junction 28 of the great
Note: North-South Motorway falls neatly within the boundary of the farm,
Note: although many of the streams which bounded the farm are now buried in
Note: pipes.
Note: PETER WORDEN, the son of Robert Worden (b. 1534, d. 1580) and Isabel
Note: Worthington, was born about 1576 in Clayton-le-Woods, Lancashire, England
Note: during the reigh of Queen Elizabeth I (1558 to 1603). He died in February
Note: 1639 at Yarmouth, Massachusetts. He was the first of the English to die
Note: in Yarmouth. He married Margaret Grice, daughter of Thomas and Alice
Note: Grice, and widow of Anthony Wall, about 1603, according to a 1607
Note: Palatine Chancery Court action (PRO-PL6/1, No. 37). She was born between
Note: 1566 and 1571, probably in Warrington, Lancashire. She died early in
Note: 1612. She had five children by her first husband, who died in 1601.
Note: Peter Worden was listed as "Gentleman" in several documents, and he was a
Note: member of the Town Council of Preston, Lancashire, England, which is
Note: located about five miles from Clayton. He was a "Foreign (outsider)
Note: Burgess" in Preston, and he leased a shop in the Guild hall, located next
Note: to the Preston Market Place, on 01October 1617. He was last recorded in
Note: Preston on 21 January 1629, when, according to the early archives of
Note: Preston Borough, he loaned 8 shillings to the Borough for a project
Note: concerned with common lands.
Note: In 1630 the Plague, which had already ravaged London, struck Preston, and
Note: 1069 people out of a population of 3000 died within the year. Peter
Note: Worden, his son, and their families probably left Preston because of the
Note: plague, as did many of the other survivors, because he next appears in
Note: the American Colonies in the mid 1630s. He was probably one of those who
Note: came "On Their Perticulers" (not belonging to any general group of
Note: emigrants from England sharing a common sectarian religion--such as the
Note: Pilgrims.)
Note: It is believed that Peter Worden was first in Lynn, Massachusetts before
Note: moving to Yarmouth in 1639. In The History of Old Yarmouth, by Charles F.
Note: Swift, is the following: "At the extreme easterly part of the Town, Peter
Note: Worden [sic] the elder and younger have established themselves, in spite
Note: of the opposition of some of their associates, and here the former died
Note: the first year of settlement."
Note: Peter Worden's will was probated on 05 March 1639. It is the first will
Note: printed in the Plymouth Court Records. A copy of the will remains in the
Note: Barnstable Probate Court. In his will Peter Worden left most of his real
Note: and personal property in both England and America to his son, Peter
Note: Worden. Both he and his son are buried in the Worden Cemetery,
Note: overlooking Cape Cod Bay. The cemetery is located on the south side of
Note: Route 6A in the Town of Dennis near the border of the Town of Brewster.
Note: Diectly across Route 6A, in a pasture, is a small foundation said to be
Note: from the house of the elder Peter Worden. The barn in the pasture is said
Note: to be built on the original foundation of the house of his son, Peter
Note: Worden.

THE ANCESTRY OF MINETTA R. WORDEN
WIFE OF CLAYTON WESLEY COLEMAN
PREFACE
The name Worden (spelled Werden in ancient times) is a topographical name. It came from the fording place on the brook that forms the boundary between the Towns of Clayton and Leyland, Lancashire, England.
This account of one line of descent from Peter Worden, who founded this line of the Worden family in America, is based on the following sources:
Schunke, Marjorie W., A manuscript entitled "The Worden Family in Rhode Island."
Bahn, Gilbert S., Oliver Norton Worden's Family. (An unpublished book).
Worden, Oliver Norton, Some Records of Persons by the Name of Worden.
Worden, Mrs. Pat, Wordens Past. A quarterly newsletter (required reading for researchers interested in the Worden family).
In this account Amos Worden (5th Generation) is assumed to be the father of Thomas Worden because he is the only Worden in time and place capable of the act. This agrees with Bahn's latest conclusions (not those voiced in his unpublished book) but remains to be proven. Regardless, Thomas Worden is still the great grandson of (Dr.) Samuel Worden, and the line of descent is basically correct.
The Worden family were occupying land in the Town of Clayton (now Clayton-le-Woods) Lancashire, England as early as 1190, according to Place Names of Lancashire, by Eilert Ekwall. TheCockersand Abbey land rental records indicate that Henry Werden was occupying land in the Town of Clayton in 1451. The earliest surviving Court Rolls of Clayton Manor (1574) contains the name William Werden and his son and heir, Robert Werden (William died that year). A William Werden was included in the Preston Guild Rolls of 1459, and Peter Werden and his son Peter Werden were on the Preston Guild Rolls as late as 1622. William Werden and his son Robert Werden were the grandfather and father of Peter Worden--the first of the Worden line in America.
"Worden Origins," by George L. Bolton, which can be found in Volume VII, No. 3, through Volume VIII, No. 2, of Wordens Past, presents detailed documentation of the early Wordens of Clayton-le-Woods and the origin of the Family Name. Although the name Werden was not listed among the principal gentry of County Palatine and the Duchy of Lancashire, it was included in the list of those "who have arms but not residences."
In a paper given on 22 and 23 April 1989 at Worden Hall, Worden Park, Leyland, England under the auspices of the University of Liverpool, George L. Bolton identifies the farm occupied by the Wordens as the parcel of land donated to the Cockersand Abbey by Gerald de Clayton between 1190 and 1210. In return the Cannons were to pray in perpetuity for the souls of the donors. Bolton states, "From the seventeenth century (and possibly before) to the nineteenth century the holding, with its farm house, was known as 'Werdens oth' Hole' or 'Werdens of the Sand Hole' because of its geological characteristics. By the turn of this century it had become Hole House Farm. The farm house, a nineteenth century rebuild, was demolished a few years ago for housing development." The Wordens rented the farm from the Cockersand Abbey for twelve pence per annum. The Abbey was dissolved about 1540. Junction 28 of the great North-South Motorway falls neatly within the boundary of the farm, although many of the streams which bounded the farm are now buried in pipes.
LINEAGE
PETER WORDEN, the son of Robert Worden (b. 1534, d. 1580) and Isabel Worthington, was born about 1576 in Clayton-le-Woods, Lancashire, England during the reigh of Queen Elizabeth I (1558 to 1603). He died in February 1639 at Yarmouth, Massachusetts. He was the first of the English to die in Yarmouth. He married Margaret Grice, daughter of Thomas and Alice Grice, and widow of Anthony Wall, about 1603, according to a 1607 Palatine Chancery Court action (PRO-PL6/1, No. 37). She was born between 1566 and 1571, probably in Warrington, Lancashire. She died early in 1612. She had five children by her first husband, who died in 1601.
Peter Worden was listed as "Gentleman" in several documents, and he was a member of the Town Council of Preston, Lancashire, England, which is located about five miles from Clayton. He was a "Foreign (outsider) Burgess" in Preston, and he leased a shop in the Guild hall, located next to the Preston Market Place, on 01 October 1617. He was last recorded in Preston on 21 January 1629, when, according to the early archives of Preston Borough, he loaned 8 shillings to the Borough for a project concerned with common lands.
In 1630 the Plague, which had already ravaged London, struck Preston, and 1069 people out of a population of 3000 died within the year. Peter Worden, his son, and their families probably left Preston because of the plague, as did many of the other survivors, because he next appears in the American Colonies in the mid 1630s. He was probably one of those who came "On Their Perticulers" (not belonging to any general group of emigrants from England sharing a common sectarian religion--such as the Pilgrims.)
It is believed that Peter Worden was first in Lynn, Massachusetts before moving to Yarmouth in 1639. In The History of Old Yarmouth, by Charles F. Swift, is the following: "At the extreme easterly part of the Town, Peter Worden [sic] the elder and younger have established themselves, in spite of the opposition of some of their associates, and here the former died the first year of settlement."
Peter Worden's will was probated on 05 March 1639. It is the first will printed in the Plymouth Court Records. A copy of the will remains in the Barnstable Probate Court. In his will Peter Worden left most of his real and personal property in both England and America to his son, Peter Worden. Both he and his son are buried in the Worden Cemetery, overlooking Cape Cod Bay. The cemetery is located on the south side of Route 6A in the Town of Dennis near the border of the Town of Brewster. Diectly across Route 6A, in a pasture, is a small foundation said to be from the house of the elder Peter Worden. The barn in the pasture is said to be built on the original foundation of the house of his son, Peter Worden.

PETER WORDEN, the son of Peter Worden and Margaret (Grice) Wall, was born in 1609 in Clayton-le-Woods, Lancashire, England. he died in 1681 in Yarmouth, Massachusetts. He married Mary in England. She died about 1681.
Peter Worden was first recorded in New England on 02 June 1640. In 1643 he and fifty-one other men of the Yarmouth Company, all sixteen to twenty year old males capable of performing military duties, were directed to establish a place of defense against sudden assault. On 05 March 1667, he was fined 10 shillings for causing a disturbance at the meeting house at Yarmouth on the Lord's Day. The disturbance consisted of sitting in a corner of the meeting house and conversing in a low tone during the service. On 05 April 1669, he bought a parcel of land from William Twing of Eastham, which he transferred to his son-in-law Kenelem on the same day--apparently as a dower for his daughter Mercy. Peter Worden was assessed a war tax (King Philip's War) of 8 pounds, 2 shillings, 3 pence in 1676--one of the largest in the Town.
Peter Worden's will, dated 09 January 1680 with a codicil dated 29 July 1680, was proved on 03 March 1681. His only son, Samuel, was named executor. The will is lengthy and detailed. his wife, Mary, survived him by six years. Her will is dated 06 March 1686. She left her Indian sqauw servant to her son, Samuel. She died on 25 March 1687 in Yarmouth. Both Peter worden and his wife, Mary, are buried in the Worden Cemetery in the Town of Dennis on Cape Cod (formerly the east end of Old Yarmouth).

ISAAC WORDEN, the son of (Dr.) Samuel Worden and Hopestill Holley, was born about 1673 in Yarmouth, Massachusetts. He died in 1718 in Stonington, Connecticut. He married Rebekah (#) at Kings Town, Rhode Island.
On 18 September 1716, the Court appointed Isaac Worden, of Stonington, administrator of his father's estate after his stepmother, Frances, refused the responsibility--having been married to (Dr.) Samuel for less than one year. Isaac died intestate two years after his father, before fulfilling his duties as administrator. Isaac's widow Rebekah then fulfilled his responsibilities. Isaac's estate, since he did not leave a will, was not settled until after Rebekah's death (about 1735). Between 1735 and 1741, each of Isaac's children signed a quitclaim deed to their brother William, probably to settle the estate.

AMOS WORDEN, the son of Isaac Worden and Rebekah , was born about 1695, probably in Stonington, Connecticut. He was a cordwainer (a leather worker) in Newport, Rhode Island in 1738 when he deeded his share of his father's estate to his brother William.
Gilbert S. Bahn, writes (in Worden's Past), "If one reviews the record of the estates of the sons of (Dr.) Samuel Worden, one finds a single candidate in the line of Peter Worden of Yarmouth who may account for the first Wordens to appear near Pawling in Dutchess County, New York. This is Isaac's son Amos, who left no record concerning residence at Newport, Rhode Island after 1738, when, at Stonington, he deeded to his brother William his share of his father's lands. Amos was a cordwainer; Nathaniel of Dutchess County, New York was a cordwainer when he arrived there. I have already suggested that Thomas of Dutchess County was a son of Isaac's son Amos." Bahn also suggests that Thomas, Amos, Isaac, and Daniel were brothers. All four were on tax rolls around Pawling in the 1750s and 1760s.
