TIFFANY

"Tiffany Genealogy" by Nelson Otis Tiffany. -- Swansea Records.
Humphrey Tiffany, probably ancestor of most of that name, came to Mass. 1660 and was a citizen of
Rehoboth as early as Jan. 22, 1663. His home was in that part of Rehoboth which is now Swansea, and
he was killed by lightning July 15, 1685 while on a journey from Swansea to Boston. He was survived by
his wife Elizabeth. The records of Swansea show he had a daughter Sarah born July 6, 1683 in that town.
Other children were: James, Thomas, Ebenezer, Consider, Ephraim, and Hezekiah. The last named was
drowned Dec. 4, 1685.

Squire Humphrey -- a popular title of a man who held the office of justice of the peace.
While riding on horseback with Frances Low, a daughter of a neighbor, from Swansea to Boston on Wed.
P. M. July 15, 1685, a thunder storm arose and he and his companion were both killed by lightning and
in accordance with views of that period it was called "The solemn judgment of God."
Ebenezer2 (Humphrey1) Tiffany born 1663 in what was later Swansea, Mass.; died in Barrington, R. I.
Feb. 10, 1747; married Elizabeth (???) (b. 1665 -- died in Barrington, R. I. March 7, 1749). Ebenezer
Tiffany was a prominent member of Barrington Congregational Church and was

THE TIFFANY FAMILY
In Part 3 of this my book, on pages 335 and 336, is a discussion concerning my finding two different
Tiffany genealogies and the inconsistencies between them. In that discussion are the reasons I believe
the following account is the most accurate.
Saturday, June 30, 1973
Again to the Syracuse Public Library, Started late today so didn't get there until 12:45 PM..
NEXT - I copied TIFFANY FAMILY "MY ANCESTERS" compiled by Ella F. Wright Idlewood, Waterbury,
Connecticut.
here it is .....
NOTES ON HUMPHREY TIFFANY
"Records of ancient Rehoboth, History of New Plymouth, by Baylin, Volumn 1, page 209, January 22,
1663, Humphrey Tiffany permitted to be a sojourner and to buy and hire."
"The town of Rehoboth, Massachusetts was incorporated 1645 and contained the town of Seekonk,
Rehoboth, Attleboro, Swansea, Massachusetts and Pawtucket, Rhode Island."
"Att the General Court holden att Plymouth the first day of March, Anno Domino, 1663, 'Humphrey
Tiffany made a complaint against an Indian for abuse received.' "
"Humphrey Tiffany, Rehoboth, 1663, by wife Elizabeth had Sarah born July 6, 1683, and was an
inhabitant of Dover for some time but killed July 15, 1685, on the journey between Swanzey and Boston
by a stroke of lightening." .. SAVAGE
"From Massachusetts Historical Society, Volumn 14, page 125 - 'July 15, 1685, Humphrey Tiffany and
Frances Low traveling betwix Swansey and Boston were slain with lightening.' "
Plymouth Colony Records, Volumn 6, page 175 - " Att General Court of his Maj'ties holden att Plymouth,
October 27, 1685, administration is granted by this court to Elizabeth, the relict of Humphrey Tiffany

deceased, on all the good and chattels of sd. Tiffeney she bringing in a true inventory thereof and giving
bond with two sufficient sureties for her administrating according to law. Major John Walley is ordered by
the court to give ye oath to the inventory of sd. Tiffany and to deliver her the letter of administration
granted by the court, he having given a bond as afore sd.."
"Hezeriah, the son of Humphrey Tiffinee and of Elizabeth, his wife, was drowned in Swansey River on
the fourth of December near night, anno 1685." From town records of Swansea, Massachusetts,
furnished by town clerk, Henry O. Wood.
From the vital records of Rehoboth, page 917, Humphrey Tiffany's heirs are quoted as proprietors not
inhabitants, February 7, 1689, of property in Rehoboth.
The emigration of the sons of Humphrey Tiffany was for a time limited to short distances. We hear of
James at Attleboro, Massachusetts, 1693, Thomas, his brother, first at Bristol, Rhode Island; Consider,
and Ephraim seem to have found their way to the Colony known as Block Island, May 4, 1669. Here -
per New Shoreham records furnished by town clerk of New Shoreham - Consider Tiffany and Abigail
Niles were married and had children. Here also his brother, Ephraim ( of whose descendants this history
deals), and wife Leshia, had issue.
Generation 2nd
Decent Humphrey (1), Ephraim (2)
Ephriam (2), son of Humphrey (1) and Elizabeth Tiffany married Leshia _____ and had issue born in
New Shoreham, Block Island, R. I..
1. Samuel (3) b. April 7, 1701; 2. Consider (3) b. April 28, 1703; 3. Humphrey (3) b. February 7, 1706.
Ephraim and his brother Consider (2) bought a large tract of land in Lyme, Conn. June 22, 1701.
Consider (2) moved to Lyme and made a number of transfers of real estate from time to time. Ephraim
did not settle in Lyme till late in 1706 or the first part of 1707, judging from an agreement between him
and his partners, Ball and Banning. For a long time I find no transfers in his name but he was living in
Lyme, Conn. in 1724, and died there previous to 1734. Was living in 1732.
Generation 3rd
Decent: Humphrey (1), Ephraim (2), Consider (3).
2. Consider (3) son of Ephraim (2) and Leshia Tiffany, born in New Shoreham, R. I., April 28, 1703,
married (per Lyme records), Naomy Comstock, Nov. 26, 1731. Naomy died May 29, 1743.
Issue:
1. Consider (4) b. March 15, 1733, in Lyme, Conn.
2. Luther (4) b. April 15, 1734 in Lyme, Conn.
3. Naomy (4) b. December 28. 1737 in Lyme, Conn.
4. Samuel (4) b. July 13, 1740 in Lyme, Conn.
5. Umphrey (4) b. March 2, 1743 in Lyme, Conn.
married 2nd Mary Davis of New London, Conn. January 23, 175___.
Issue: born in Lyme, Conn.
6. Timothy (4) b. November 24, 1752
7. Titus (4) b. May 9, 1754.
From this point on Ella Wright follows the family of Consider (4) from whom she is descended. His first
child was Jemima Tiffany b. Oct. 12, 1756; m. Ebenezer Crane.

I have a number of books here at the house on Block Island or Newport
County, Rhode Island. There are NO Tiffany family members buried in the main
cemetery on Block Island.

There is an Ephraim Tiffany (Captain) 1704-February 27, 1771 buried in Prince Hill Cemetery in
Barrington, Rhode Island. Check out this web site of cemetery records of all of Rhode Island. This is the

Consider, son of Humphrey Tiffany, married (first) _____. He married (second), in
Lyme, Connecticutt, January 23, 1753, Mary Davis. Little is known of him except that
he was a landholder and a farmer. A deed dated Lyme, Connecticutt, July 13, 1756,
identifies Sergeant Consider Tiffany as his eldest son. Children of first wife: Consider,
born March 15, 1730, mentioned below; Daniel, Samuel, 1740, Lyme. Children of
second wife: Timothy, born November 24, 1754; Lyme; Titus, May 9, 1755, Lyme.
Consider (2), son of Consider (I) Tiffany, was born March 15, 1730, in Lyme, died at
Hartland, June 19, 1796. He married in Lyme, Sarah Wilder, born August 13, 1738,
Lyme, died November 7, 1818, Hartland, Connecticutt. He lived in Lyme until after the
birth of his first three children. Here he was a farmer and carried on a small business
as storekeeper. At Hartland, where his other children were born, he was engaged in
the same business but on a much larger scale. He transacted a great amount of
business and was always careful to enforce his rights. At one time he was a school
teacher, and it is said that when he entered upon this work it was the first time he had
ever been in school. It is further stated that he was a good teacher and a close student
. He was something of a an astronomer, and is said to have calculated an almanac,
but not copy of it has been found. He was also a writer of prose and poetry, and kept
diaries in which he recorded his daily adventures. One of these covers the period of
the French and Indian war, in 1756, and another the revolution. On his death he left
the latter to his eldest son, with instructions that it was to be transmitted from eldest
son to eldest son, as an heirloom. It is now in possession of Henry Tiffany, of Clyde,
Ohio, and forms a valuable addition to the revolutionary history of the country, written
from the Tory standpoint. He was a member of the Church of England and had little
patience with the dissenting sects. During the revolution he was loyal not only to the
English church, but also to the English crown. In 1778 he was confined to his farm in
Hartland because of his outspoken Toryism and remained there for fifteen months. At
the end of that time, hearing that he was about to be released, he wrote to the
chairman of the committee, asking that he might be allowed to remain where he was,
as he still retained the same sentiments and had no intention of being drafted for the
continental army. During the French and Indian campaign in 1756 he was sergeant of
Captain William Lamson’s company, and after his return joined another military
company, which probably had its headquarters in Boston. He had an extensive

Library for those times. A list of the books contained in it in 1788 has been found in a
book of sermons in his own handwriting. His will, dated February 7, 1778, is a

Introduction

Squire Humphrey is the earliest Tiffany mentioned in Colonial History and hi is
undoubtedly the ancestor of the majority of Tiffanys in America. The following notes
copied from reliable records seem to fix the date when be became a citizen of the town
of Rehoboth, Mass. (which town was incorporated in 1645, and contained the present
towns fo Seekonk, Rehoboth, Attleboro, parts of Swansea, Mass., and Pawtucket, R.I.)
. The birth of a daughter, Sarah July 6, 1683; his death by lightning; the administration
of his estate by wife Elizabeth; the death of his son, Hezekiah, the same year by
drowning; ending with a record from the vital records of Rehoboth, which affirm his
heirs in 1689 to be proprietors not inhabitants of property in Rehoboth, Mass.

Notes of Humphrey Tiffany --

Jan 22, 1663, Humphrey Tiffany permitted to be a sojourner and to buy and hire.

the town o'Rehoboth, Mass., was incorporated 1645 and contained the towns of
Seekonk, Rehoboth, Attleboro, Swansea, Mass., and Pawtucket, RI.

Att the General Court holden att Plymouth the first day of March, Anno Dorn 1663,
Humphrey Tiffany made a complaint against an Indian for abuse received.




Humphrey Tiffany, Rehoboth, 1663, by wife Elizabeth had Sarah born July 6, 1683,
and was an inhabitant of Dover for some time but killed July 15, 1685, on the journey
between Swanzey and Boston by a stroke of lightning. -- Savage

From Mass. Historical Society, Vol 14., page 125, July 15, 1685, Humphrey Tiffany
and Frances Low Travelling betwix Swanswey an Boston were slain with lightning.

Plymouth Colony Records, Vol 6, page 175. Att a General Court of hi Majtie att
Plymouth, Oct, 27, 1685, administration is granted by this court to Elizabeth, the relict
of Humphrey Tiffany deceased, on all the goods and chattles of sd., Tiffeney she
bringing in true inventory there of and giving bond with two sufficient sureties for her
administering according to law. Major John Walley is ordered the Court to give ye oath
to the inventory of sd. Tiffeney and to deliver her the letter of administration granted by
the Court, her having given a bond as afore sd.

Hezekiah, the son of Humprey Tiffinee and of Elizabeth his wife, was drowned in
Swansey River on the 4th of December near night, anno 1685. From the Town
records of Swansea, Mass., furnished by town clerk Henry O. Wood.

From the Vital Records of Rehoboth, page 917, Humphrey Tiffany's heirs are quoted
as proprietors not inhabitants, Feb 7, 1689, of property in Rehoboth.

The emigration of the sons of Humphrey Tiffany was for a time limitied to short
distances. We hear of James at Attleboro, Mass., 1693; Thomas his brother, first at
Bristol, the at Ashford; Ebenezer another brother at Barrington, RI; Consider and
Ephraim seem to have found their way to the town of New Shoreham, which town was
admitted to the Colony as Block Island, May 4, 1664. Here per New Shoreham
records funished by town clerk of New Shoreham -- Consider Tiffany and Abigail Niles
were married and had children. Here also his brother Ephraim (of whose descendants
