New Haven Records

30 May 1655 at a General Court at New Haven.



Trying to estimate Mary's birth: We know she was married to William Chatterton by July 1661, so say 1660-15=1645 or 1660-21=1639. She had her last child in 1680. Her husband William was 21 by 1646, when he had an assigned seat at the meeting house so born before 1625

There are no printed vital records in New Haven before 1649. 6 Jan 1645[citation needed] has no basis in known fact.

James Clark in a tax list estimated to have been written in 1641 has 4 persons in his household implying 2 children.

1655 Mary Clark in court records.. that John Knight corrupted her and she has to much complied with him. She seems to be living with Goodman Judson and wife at this time.


Mary Chatterton, an adult was baptized 8 Apr 1688 at the First New Haven Congregational Society. Mary Chatterton Sr. was admitted to the church in June of the same year.[1]


Mary Chatterton, widow, died 3 Feb 1722 in Wallingord, Connecticut.[2]


Date: 06 JAN 1645
Place: of, New Haven, New Haven, CT[3]
