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

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.

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.

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 --

Records of Ancient Rehoboth, History of New Plymouth, by Baylis, Vol I page 209. 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

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 4
th 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

married and had children. Here also his brother Ephraim (of whose descendants this history deals), and

"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

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,

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

"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)

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,

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.

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

Page 1161

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
characteristic document and has been preserved. Children: Jemima, born October 12,
1756, Lyme; Ephraim, November 8, 1758, mentioned below; Dorothy, June 19, 1762,
Lyme; Levi, April 23, 1766, Hartland; Consider, March 12, 1769, Hartland; Betsey
Wilder, February 25, 1772, Hartland.

married, in Hartland, February 27, 1783, Anna Harger, born 1758, died December 17,
1824, Barkhamsted, Connecticutt. He died in Barkhamsted, April 7, 1818. Children,

From my book "Line of Descent of George Roger Gilbert"

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.

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

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.

"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.

From my book "Line of Descent of George Roger Gilbert"
2133 SAMUEL (3 Consider, 2 Ephraim 1 Humphrey). (Born Lyme, Conn. July 13, 1740,
died Tomkins, N.Y.) ^ Married, in Lyme, Conn. , about 1760, Abigail Curtis (b.
Connecticut; d. Tomkins, N.Y., March, 1829)
Soon after his marriage, Mr. Tiffany moved into New York State, fought in the French
and Indian War, and subsequently enlisted as a continental soldier in the War of the
Revolution. It is said that he saved his Tory Brother, Consider, from being pressed into
service as a soldier in the Revolutionary War. Samuel Tiffany was a farmer.
Following this paragraph in that genealogy is a listing of their children, the last of which
is Amy. A list of her children can be seen at the end of this account. ^
The fact that Tomkins, N.Y. is mentioned in the genealogy suggested Samuel was the

correct parent since Tompkins, N. Y. is nearby Walton. I decided to use the Federal
Census to find the Tiffanys and where they settled. I did not find a Samuel Tiffany that
was 60 years old in any census of Delaware County. I did find a Nathaniel C. Tiffany
whose household contained a man and a woman both of whom were older than 45.
Samuel Tiffany's child Nathaniel C. Tiffany had no birth date in the genealogy I was
using but if he was born after Samuel's marriage in 1760 he would be 40 or younger
and the census for Nathaniel C. Tiffany would thus contain himself and his parents.
The fact that there are several really young children and some others near marrying
age further suggests that some of Samuel's later children might also have resided there
. By the history accounts seen on the next page, Nanthaniel C. followed his brothers to
this new place probably bringing his aging parents along. This 1800 Census shows
that Isaac Darrow , Jr., living in his father's house, lived on the opposite side of John
Rich from Amy Tiffany, who was probably living in Nathaniel Curtis Tiffany's house
with her father.
Children of Amy (Tiffany), (55), and Isaac Darrow, (54): ^
2149 viii Amy, b. December 8, 1783; d. December 17, 1857; m. Isaac Darrow (B.
September 11, 1781). Mr. Darrow enlisted in the regular army and was probably killed,
as nothing was ever heard of him after that time.

Also looked through Munsell's History of Delaware County 1797 - 1880 and found
several interesting entries under Hamden, New York.
Here are the entries:
page 197 - "Pioneers of Hamden"
Among the very early settlers were two brothers George and Samuel Tiffany, young
men and sons of one Nathaniel C. Tiffany who came about 1796. We lose sight of the
father after he settled the farm below the Shaw farm but George married the daughter
of James Mason and assisted very much in the increase of the population and Samuel,
a mechanic and cooper, made a useful man in the settlement.

From my book "Line of Descent of George Roger Gilbert"
Samuel's marriage to Abigail Curtis must have occurred elsewhere as must the birth of
their children. In fact, I lose track of them until they appear as numbers in the 1800
census of Nathaniel Curtis Tiffany in Delaware County, New York.
Samuel was 60 years old in 1800 and his wife about the same. Nathaniel Curtis Tiffany
was born about 1763 and would be about 37. Clearly, Nathaniel's mother, Abigail, is
too old to be the mother of six children under 10 and Nathaniel can not be the male
enumerated as 45 and up. It is most likely that Samuel and Abigail were living with
Nathaniel and his family. They were living in Hamden, New York a small Hamlet
between Walton and Delhi. The HISTORY OF DELAWARE COUNTY 1797-1880
states that Nathaniel C. Tiffany came to Hamden about 1796 with his sons George and
Samuel. Since George is listed in the 1800 census and Samuel is not, we might
assume that Samuel is still living with his father Nathaniel C. and his grandparents,
Samuel and Abigail Tiffany.

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

From my book "Line of Descent of George Roger Gilbert"

2133 SAMUEL (3 Consider, 2 Ephraim 1 Humphrey). (Born Lyme, Conn. July 13, 1740,
died Tomkins, N.Y.) ^ Married, in Lyme, Conn. , about 1760, Abigail Curtis (b.
Connecticut; d. Tomkins, N.Y., March, 1829)
Soon after his marriage, Mr. Tiffany moved into New York State, fought in the French
and Indian War, and subsequently enlisted as a continental soldier in the War of the
Revolution. It is said that he saved his Tory Brother, Consider, from being pressed into
service as a soldier in the Revolutionary War. Samuel Tiffany was a farmer.
Following this paragraph in that genealogy is a listing of their children, the last of which
is Amy. A list of her children can be seen at the end of this account. ^
The fact that Tomkins, N.Y. is mentioned in the genealogy suggested Samuel was the
correct parent since Tompkins, N. Y. is nearby Walton. I decided to use the Federal
Census to find the Tiffanys and where they settled. I did not find a Samuel Tiffany that
was 60 years old in any census of Delaware County. I did find a Nathaniel C. Tiffany
whose household contained a man and a woman both of whom were older than 45.
Samuel Tiffany's child Nathaniel C. Tiffany had no birth date in the genealogy I was
using but if he was born after Samuel's marriage in 1760 he would be 40 or younger
and the census for Nathaniel C. Tiffany would thus contain himself and his parents.
The fact that there are several really young children and some others near marrying
age further suggests that some of Samuel's later children might also have resided there
. By the history accounts seen on the next page, Nanthaniel C. followed his brothers to
this new place probably bringing his aging parents along. This 1800 Census shows
that Isaac Darrow , Jr., living in his father's house, lived on the opposite side of John
Rich from Amy Tiffany, who was probably living in Nathaniel Curtis Tiffany's house
with her father.
Children of Amy (Tiffany), (55), and Isaac Darrow, (54): ^
2149 viii Amy, b. December 8, 1783; d. December 17, 1857; m. Isaac Darrow (B.
September 11, 1781). Mr. Darrow enlisted in the regular army and was probably killed,
as nothing was ever heard of him after that time.
Children -
3180 John Tiffany - b. Nov. 17, 1800, m. Cynthia Bruce on June 4, 1841had several
children.
3181 Affa Ward - b. Dec. 26, 1805; d. Apr. 15, 1875 m. Sept. 15, 1829, Wm. R. Berray

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.

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.

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.

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.

PM..
