Where did Manwaring included an abstract of Jonas Weed at Southampton ... "?

+3 votes
I would like to separate the Weed's and the Wood's. Just today I found 3 profiles that include the statement attributed to Robert Charles Anderson about Manwaring's reference to Jonas Weed as a likely mis-reading of Jonas Wood and a potential wife named Strickland. In which article did Manwaring discuss Jonas Weed that Anderson thinks is Jonas Wood ? I did not find it in the Manwaring's 3 volumes of early Connect probate records. I appreciate anyone who can provide the specific reference to Manwaring's discussion of Jonas Weed.

Hi Anne, I have seen this entry under Field, Zachary. It simply says Jonas Weed late of Southampton, L.I. defendant in an action of debt. So I don't understand why the comments in the various wiki-tree profiles indicate this has a connection with a marriage to a woman named Strickland.
I have no idea either.

IN context the Anderson Article on Jonas Weed. "An entry in Manwaring's abstracts of Connecticut probate records of 1657 refers to "Jonas Weed late of Southampton, L.I." [Manwaring 1:113. This must be a misreading for Jonas Wood.

Aha I see, it is Jonas Wood who was married to a Strickland, and was dead at Southhampton by 1657.

Which doesn't seem to have anything to do with Josias Firman
Ok I think I understand. Anderson's comment is pertinent to Jonas Weed-33 to explain that Weed was not deceased in the court record dated 4 Mar 1657. Rather Jonas Wood, late of Southampton, LI, died before 4 Mar 1657.

Of course there are 3 or more Jonas Wood residing on Long Island.
