•Birth: ABT. 1636 in Roxbury,NJ
•Note: Was born in Roxbury abt 1636. He was not educated as his brothers were, but he was energetic and successful in accumulation property. He seems to have been specially careful about the titles to his land, and was not content with a grant from the town of Newark alone, but secured a patent form the proprietors also.He had a home lot assigned to him like other original settles, and in his conveyances of lands he was often designated as "Planter". He and his brother Joseph were the first to obtain grants of outside lands from the town authorities, and his accumulations in this direction seem to have been quite extensive.

•Name: Edward Riggs
•Sex: M
•Birth: ABT. 1614 in england-to USA via Boston, Mass in 1633
•Death: ABT. 1668
•Note:
He was born in England abt 1614 and came to this county along with his father and family, landing in Boston, Mass. in 1633. He assisted his father in preparing a new house and in taking care of the sick until April 5 1635, when he married Elizabeth Roosa, quite a young girl, whose family also came from England. In 1637 he was a sergeant in the Pequot war, and he distinguished himself by rescuing a body of his copmanions from an ambuscade into which they had been led by the Indians. In latter years he became a settler at Milford, Conn. and had land assigned to him.

In 1655, associated with Edward Wooster, Richard Baldwin, John Browne, Robert Dennison, JohnBurnett and perhaps others, they bought from the Indians the district of county on the Naugatuck, then known as Paugusset, some ten or twelve miles above Milford. They established a plantation which was afterward called Derby. The location of Sergeant Riggs was known as "Riggs Hill". He build his house on this hill and build a strong stockade as a protection against the Indians. In this house Edward secreted and protected Whaley and Goff, two of the English Parliament that condemned and executed Charles I, while emissaries of Charles II were making a most diligent search for them in 1661.

The province of New Jersey was named as a grant from the Crown in 1664. In 1665, Edward, with some of his associates in the plantation of Derby visited New Jersey and were so well pleased with the propects that they found a new plantation on the Passaic and the site of Newark was then decied upon. The next year he spent most of the summer there preparing the proposed colony, and his wife was with him, the first white woman to spend a summer in Newark. The fundamental agreement was executed June 24, 1667. His sons Edward and Joseph were designated as "Planters", that is, original proprietors.
The other son Samuel remained at Derby.

In 1668, the next year after the colony was fully organized, Edward died. His widow then married Caleb Carwithie (sometime before 1671).

Previous to her marriage she conveyed to her son Joseph one-half of her home lot.

FREEMAN: 14 May 1634 [MBCR 1:368].
EDUCATION: Used a mark when signing deed in 1671, and when signing his will in 1676. Included in the inventory of his estate is a "cupboard with two or three small books."
ESTATE: In the Roxbury estate list done in the 1640s, Edward Riggs's valuation of twelve acres in the thousand acres at Dedham and £4 personal estate made him one of the least affluent in Roxbury [RBOP 4].
In the Roxbury land inventory of approximately 1652, Edward Riggs held seven parcels: house, barn and homelot, five acres; three acres upon the end of the Great Lots; seven acres "upon the said highway"; one acre in the fresh meadow with two rods of upland at each end; three roods of salt marsh in Black Neck; thirteen acres twenty rods in "the division of the Nookes being the sixth lot"; and ten acres in the thousand acres near Dedham [RBOP 37].
These comprised the usual sequence of grants, and did not include anything acquired other than by grant.
On 24 January 1671 (after his will was written) Edward Riggs sold to Stephen Williams of Roxbury three parcels: house with three acres; one acre salt marsh; and one acre fresh meadow [SLR 14:93].
In his will, dated 2 September 1670 and proved 6 March 1671/2, "Edward Rigges of Roxbury ... although very crazy and weak in body" bequeathed to "my daughter-in-law my son Edward Riggs his wife" 20s.; to "my four grandchildren my son Edward's children" £4 (20s. each); residue to "my daughter Mary Twitchell and her children"; to "my daughter Mary ... a double portion namely twice so much of my estate as falls to any of her children"; to "my grandchild Elizabeth Allen" her portion paid soon after his death; "my grandchildren Joseph Twichell and Hanp [sic] Twichell" to receive their portions when they come of age or marry, in the meantime in the hands of Steven Williams; to "the rest of my grandchildren by my daughter Mary Twitchell" their portions when they come of age or at marriage; "loving friend John Steebins" executor; "loving friends Mr. Thomas Weld and Giles Parson" overseers. An undated codicil provides for the disposal of the estate in case of the early death of the grandchildren [SPR 7:200-01].
The inventory of the estate of Edward Riggs was taken 5 March 1671[/2] and totalled £128 7s., of which £93 was real estate: "his house and land at home sold in his lifetime," £80; and "more land sold by him," £13 [SPR 7:201].
BIRTH: By about 1593 based on date of first marriage.
DEATH: Roxbury 5 March 1671/2 [RChR 180].
MARRIAGE: (1) Nazeing, Essex, 16 September 1618 Elizabeth Holmes; she was buried at Roxbury October 1635. (2) Roxbury 5 April 1635 Elizabeth Roosa [RVR MS 128] (but see COMMENTS below); she died at Roxbury 2

i EDWARD, bp. Nazeing 17 October 1619; m. by 1662 _____ _____ ("my son Edward's wife" who had at least four children with him by 1670).
ii LYDIA, b. say 1623; bur. Roxbury August 1633.
iii ELIZABETH, bp. Nazeing 30 December 1627; bur. Roxbury May 1634.
iv JOHN, bp. Nazeing 17 January 1629/30; bur. Roxbury October 1634.
v MARY, bp. Nazeing 1 July 1632; m. say 1649 Benjamin Twitchell.

COMMENTS: Savage suggests that Riggs had two daughters who lived to marry, but this apparently assumes that grandchild Elizabeth Allen was born an Allen, when in fact she was a Twitchell who married William Allen of Medfield. The name "Hanp" given to one of his Twitchell grandchildren by Riggs in his will is an error created by the person who transcribed the will in the nineteenth century; the correct name could be determined by examining the original of the record book or investigating the Twitchell family. The death date for the first wife of the immigrant or the marriage date to the second must be wrong. In 1959 Donald Lines Jacobus argued differently, making Elizabeth Roosa the wife of the son of the immigrant: "Nothing whatever is known of Edward's wife or of any Roosa family, and the surname may be a misreading. Edward's mother died October 1635, and his father thereafter acquired a second wife Elizabeth; if the dates are misstated, the Roosa marriage could belong to the father, and one printed source so states the matter. However, we have to accept the dates as reported unless they can be proved wrong. Edward Jr. must have married about this time, and he left a widow named Elizabeth, so we follow the generally accepted account and believe it to be correct" [Parke-Gildersleeve 107].
In a letter to William Bradford dated 28 July 1637, John Winthrop wrote of the exploits of Edward Riggs in the Pequot war: ... they gave order to surround the swamp, it being about a mile about; but Lieutenant Davenport, and some twelve more, not hearing that command, fell into the swamp among the Indians. The swamp was so thick with shrub wood, and so boggy with all, that some of them stuck fast, and received many shot. Lieutenant Davenport was dangerously wounded about his armhole and another shot in the head, so as fainting, they were in great danger to have been taken by the Indians, but Sergeant Rigges, and Jeffery and two or three more rescued them, and slew diverse of the Indians with their swords" [WP 3:456].
