Biography

John Alden, the youngest son of Isaac Alden and Mehitable Allen, "was born presumably at Bridgewater, probably after 9 January 1702 (birth date of last recorded sibling)."[1] If he were aged 22 at the time of his first marriage, he would have been born by 1705. He was mentioned last of the sons in his fathers will, so he would have been born after 1693. His birth was not recorded with the rest of his siblings in the town records.

John married first Hannah Kingman on November 22, 1727 and had the following children before she died on December 26, 1744. All of their children were born at Bridgewater:[1]

  1. John, twin, b. 1729, d. 1747
  2. James, twin, b. 1729, d. 1747
  3. Isaac, b. 1731
  4. Jonathan, b. 1733
  5. Hannah, b. 1735/6
  6. Adam, b. 1738, d. 1746
  7. Son, b. 1740, d. 1740
  8. Son, d. 1742
  9. Abigail, b. 1742, d. 1747
  10. Keziah, b. 1743

John married second Rebecca Nightingale on March 15, 1745. They had the following children, all born at Bridgewater:[1]

  1. Rebecca, b. 1745
  2. John, b. 1747
  3. Esther, b. 1749, d. 1762
  4. James, b. 1751
  5. Adam, b. 1754, d. 1777
  6. Joseph, b. 1755, d. 1778
  7. Benjamin, b. 1757

John died at Bridgewater on April 17, 1759.[1] His death was recorded in the Bridgeport Vital Records. He left his second wife with young children and step-children. He provided for them in his will.
