THE FIRST GENERATION

EDWARD RIGGS of ROXBURY


1. EDWARD RIGGS
Edward's ancestry in England before he came to America is documented separately under the pages for MILES RIGGS, OF ROYDON. ESSEX. These include details of Edward's wife's family (Elizabeth Holmes), his marriage to her, and the baptisms of their children in Nazeing, Essex; there is also a family tree of Edward's English relations.

Edward and Elizabeth Riggs and their children landed in the early summer of 1633 in Boston, which was part of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. They had probably sailed from London, on either the 'William and Jane' or the 'Mary and Jane'.

Edward and his family were among the very early settlers in Roxbury, Suffolk County, Massachusetts, where a number of other families from Nazeing also settled, collectively referred to at that time as the "Nazeing Christians" [S5]. Roxbury, which initially became a separate township on the Boston outskirts, is now part of the city itself.

But at that time, the migrants landed in what was still a wilderness, and about one in three perished during or soon after their voyage.[S7] Within a few months of landing in New England, death started to afflict Edward's family, and three of his five children as well as his wife all died within 30 months of their arriving:

2. EDWARD RIGGS (EDWARD)
Edward was baptised at Nazeing, Essex in the UK on 17OCT1619 [S1][S2] and migrated to America with his parents, landing in Boston in the early summer of 1633 and settling in nearby Roxbury.

In the Roxbury Vital Records there is an entry on 5APR1635 for the marriage of Edward Riggs and Elizabeth ROOSA [S42][S3]. Whilst Edward would only have been 15 at that time, he was allegedly married "quite a young girl" [S3]. Elizabeth's surname in the entry is apparently difficult to decipher. It has generally been quoted as Elizabeth ROOSA, but on the CD-ROM of these VRs it is apparently REOSA [S17], and Savage [S5] had read it as ROOKE. However, in all probability her name was ELIZABETH ROSE, as substantiated in the separate notes on the two marriages of Edward and Elizabeth and on Elizabeth Rose and her family.

After he married, he probably moved to Wethersfield, CT and, following a notable act of bravery in the Pequot Indian War in 1637, he became known as Sergeant Riggs for the rest of his life. He was a true pioneer in that he was one of the original planters of Milford, CT in 1640, and later helped establish the Derby Plantation, CT in 1655, before finally moving to Newark, NJ which he helped to found in 1666.

Sergeant Riggs's death took place in Newark, New Jersey between 10JNE1669 and 25JAN1670N, only a few years after moving there from Connecticut. His widow subsequently married CALEB CARWITHIE.[S3]

It has been said that Elizabeth ROSE possibly died 02SEP1634 at Branford [S69]. However, this has not been corroborated and records of the Newark Town Meetings of 25JAN1670N and 02JLY1670 [S69] both refer to a 'Widow Riggs' (for details, see the note on Sergeant Riggs's death). Furthermore, Edward of Roxbury's will dated 02SEP1670 makes a bequest to "my daughter-in-law my son Edward Riggs his wife". Admittedly, none of these mention her christian name, and it might be argued that Edward could have remarried, but no evidence has been found to prove Elizabeth pre-deceased Edward or that he married a second time.

MOVE TO WETHERSFIELD, CT, 1635?. Adams & Styles [S67] describe Robert ROSE, Edward's father-in-law, as one of the original ten "adventurers" at Wethersfield, CT, and they quote Drake [S68] as saying: "Wethersfield, the oldest town in Connecticut, received ... its first considerable emigrations in 1634."

Wallace says nothing was known of the whereabouts of Edward between 1635 and 1640, but he probably went to live with his wife's parents in Wethersfield after his marriage to Elizabeth. This is a reasonable assumption based on the facts detailed in the separate Note on the Wethersfield Plantation, CT.

ACT OF BRAVERY. Edward Riggs served in the Pequot Indian War of 1637 and was commended for an act of bravery, which took place on 13JLY1637. Wallace said "By this notable act of bravery and skill the name of "Sergeant Riggs" became his well-known designation as long as he lived" [S3]. Abbot [S48] also states that Edward "was a Sergeant in the Pequot War", but may have derived this from Wallace who is referred to as Abbot's source for details of Edward's marriage. Anderson included the incident in his entry [S4] describing Edward of Roxbury but, although he distinguishes clearly elsewhere between Edward "the immigrant" and Edward "the son of the immigrant", in this instance I believe he confused the two. Drake reports the act of bravery took place on land which became the town of Fairfield, CT [S46].

MOVE TO MILFORD, CT, 1640. In 1640, 3 years after the act of bravery at Fairfeld, CT, Edward became one of the original planters at Milford, CT [S3], only 15 miles or so from Fairfeld. Citizen soldiers, especially those who had gained fame and notoriety from it, were given grants of land in the territory where that war was essentially fought.[S69] Atwater [S66] states that Edward was an "after planter" and received lot #63 of 3 acres on the west side of West Town Street, Milford. Having been baptised in October 1619, he would have been 21 by October 1840 and old enough by then to receive a grant of land.

MOVE TO DERBY PLANTATION, CT, 1655. According to Wallace, in 1655 Edward, with Edward Wooster, John Browne, Robert Dennison and others, bought land from the Indians on the Naugatuck River and establshed a plantation called Derby some 10 or 12 miles above Milford [S3] (the town of Derby wasn't created until 1675). A more accurate account of this is given in the note on the Derby Plantation, based on the facts according to the Derby Historical Society [S25]. Edward located his homestead on a hill which came to be known as "Riggs' Hill" and this was still in the possession of his descendants in 1900 [S3].

In 1661, the year following Charles II's restoration to the English throne, Wallace refers to the search along the coast of Connecticut and New Haven by Charles II's emissaries for two members of the English Parliament that had condemned and executed his father Charles I [S3]. During this search, Wallace states that Edward helped to hide and protect the two men. There is a fuller account elsewhere on Hiding the Regicides [S30] but this does not mention Edward.

MOVE TO NEWARK, NJ, 1666. In May 1666, Edward, his wife and Joseph his son left New Haven Colony with other families from Branford and Milford and sailed for New Jersey. According to Wallace, in 1666 Edward's wife Elizabeth was the first white woman to spend a summer in Newark [S3], but he may have confused her with Elizabeth Swaine (the affianced bride of another founder Josiah Ward), who by tradition was the first of the party to set foot on New Jersey soil [S56]. To learn the political and religious reasons which forced this move, please see the note on the move to Newark, New Jersey.

On October 30, 1666 the men of these families signed an agreement to form a common township at "New-Ark on Pesayack" and this contains the signature of Edward Riggs and that of his son Joseph [S58] (according to Wallace [S3], the "fundamental agreement" was executed on June 24 1667). Edward, Joseph's brother, arrived with his wife and children later in 1667.

Sgt.Edward received the 6th lot awarded in the first drawing [S18] in the creation of "New-Ark" in 1667. The following diagram shows the plots occupied by the early settlers based on the original map made by Samuel H.Conger [S60]. It identifies the plots of Sgt.Edward's two sons Edward and Joseph and the plot of his daughter Mary and her husband George Day. The original map, identifying the rest of the occupiers including Edward's probable brother-in-law Lt.Samuel Rose (who had moved there from Branford), can be seen in the separate note on the First Settlers of Newark, NJ.


Wallace documents the known children of EDWARD and ELIZABETH as follows:

7. EDWARD RIGGS
Born in Roxbury MA about 1636.


8. SAMUEL RIGGS
Born in Milford CT about 1640.


9. JOSEPH RIGGS
Born in Milford CT about 1642.


10. MARY RIGGS
Born in Milford CT about 1644.

Wallace states that little is known about Mary, except that she married GEORGE DAY and that legal proceedings show they had three known sons: Paul, born about 1665; George, born about 1667; and Samuel, born about 1669 [S3]. The map of the Home Plots of Newark above shows George Day occupying the next-but-one plot to the plot occupied initially by Mary's father Sgt.Edward and subsequently by her brother Joseph. A recent researcher [S51] states that Mary remarried ANTHONY OLIFFE sometime after 1684 in Newark, Essex Co. NJ.

Another recent researcher [S32] has reported that Mary's son PAUL DAY married a PHEBEE(sic) BROWN, and that PHEBEE DAY was a beneficiary under the Will of LT SAMUEL ROSE. Samuel was most probably Edward's brother-in-law and had also moved to Newark. He referred to Phebee in his Will as his "cousin", but this term was often used up until the nineteenth century to cover a large number of indirect relationships, not just the specific relationships currently meant by the term cousin.


2. EDWARD RIGGS
Edward, who had been baptised at Nazeing, Essex on 17OCT1619 (as "Edward Rigges") [S1][S2], was one of the two children who survived their childhood.


SERGEANT EDWARD RIGGS of ENG, MA, CT & NJ

2. EDWARD RIGGS (EDWARD)
Edward was baptised at Nazeing, Essex in the UK on 17OCT1619 [S1][S2] and migrated to America with his parents, landing in Boston in the early summer of 1633 and settling in nearby Roxbury.

Wallace documents the known children of EDWARD and ELIZABETH as follows:

7. EDWARD RIGGS
Born in Roxbury MA about 1636.


8. SAMUEL RIGGS
Born in Milford CT about 1640.


9. JOSEPH RIGGS
Born in Milford CT about 1642.


10. MARY RIGGS
Born in Milford CT about 1644.

Wallace states that little is known about Mary, except that she married GEORGE DAY and that legal proceedings show they had three known sons: Paul, born about 1665; George, born about 1667; and Samuel, born about 1669 [S3]. The map of the Home Plots of Newark above shows George Day occupying the next-but-one plot to the plot occupied initially by Mary's father Sgt.Edward and subsequently by her brother Joseph. A recent researcher [S51] states that Mary remarried ANTHONY OLIFFE sometime after 1684 in Newark, Essex Co. NJ.

Another recent researcher [S32] has reported that Mary's son PAUL DAY married a PHEBEE(sic) BROWN, and that PHEBEE DAY was a beneficiary under the Will of LT SAMUEL ROSE. Samuel was most probably Edward's brother-in-law and had also moved to Newark. He referred to Phebee in his Will as his "cousin", but this term was often used up until the nineteenth century to cover a large number of indirect relationships, not just the specific relationships currently meant by the term cousin.

EDWARD RIGGS (EDWARD, EDWARD)
Edward Riggs was allegedly born in Roxbury MA about 1636.

Neither Wallace nor Abbott [S48] found any record of a marriage, but both reported that Edward's wife's name was MARY. Torrey [S45] reported her as "MARY [MUNN]?". This is probably based on the fact that a 'Daniell Munne' of Milford made an oral will prior to 13JNE1666 leaving his estate to Mary 'Rigs' [S72] which, if one makes the reasonable assumption that Mary was Daniel's married daughter, implies that Edward married MARY MUNN(E) prior to 13JNE1666.

This casts doubt on a statement made by a recent researcher [S33] that Edward married twice: that a MARY BROWN, born in 1639 at Roxbury, was the mother of his ten children and that MARY MUNN his second wife, also born in 1639, died in 1689. The first child was born about 1662 and the last about 1685 (see below), so if MARY MUNN married Edward prior to 13JNE1666 and did not die until 1689 as the researcher states, she would have been the mother of at least 7 of these children. The statement may have been an attempt to reconcile the probability that Edward married MARY MUNN with a possible reference elsewhere to him marrying a Brown (if so, he could have been confused with his brother Joseph who married Hannah Brown).

In 1667, Edward and his family followed his father Edward's family from Derby CT to Newark NJ, where they were amongst the original settlers - he and his brother Joseph were the first to obtain grants of outside lands from the town authorities. He was assigned a home lot in Newark and, though he was not as educated as his two younger brothers, he succeeded in accumulating other landed property there, which he subsequently distributed among his children. In his land conveyances, he was often designated as a "planter"

No record has been found of his death, but he was still alive in 1700 when he was party to a deed.

Wallace states that "In Mr Conger's collections he gives the following children from tradition, but their order and approximate dates are arranged here as circumstances and a few known facts seem to direct":

**********************************************************

EDWARD RIGGS (EDWARD, EDWARD, EDWARD)
Born about 1668 in Newark, Essex Co. NJ.

Married APHIA STOUGHTON about 1692. Wallace states that traditionally Edward had 8 sons "but we have never been able to identify more than 3 of them fully." A road record "located him at the end of the mountain and near the village of Milburn, and in 1708 he settled at Basking Ridge", Somerset Co. NJ.

DAVID RIGGS
Born about 1709, married ELIZABETH COX, daughter of Philip Cox.
