EWER AND YOUARD/YEWARD (?) in Ashford, Conn.
Posted by: Kathy Fuller (ID *****7250) Date: April 07, 2012 at 18:52:16

I am trying to find out whether my six-great grandmother Abigail Fuller, who married James Fuller in Ashford, Conn., in 1717, might have been a Ewer. On most Fuller sites and in Wm Hyslop Fuller's Fuller genealogies, she is listed as Abigail Youmans, Youmans being a well-established New England family; however, the vital records of Ashford clearly have YOUARD (the Barbour transcriptions listing it as YEWARD or possibly LENARD). There being no Yewards/Youards/Ewarts listed in Savage's biographical dictionary (or in Pope's Pioneers of Mass.), I am wondering whether the clerk put down YOUARD as close phonetically to what Abigail told him. The Abigail Ewer baptized in 1706 in Barnstabple would be too young to have married James, but not if she had been born five or six years before baptism (Most were baptized soon after birth, but perhaps she was not.). Did any Ewers get over to Ashford or to Attleborough and Rehoboth, Mass., or Rhode Island? Bill Fuller
