Birth & Parents

Benjamin Haviland, son of Benjamin Haviland & Abigail Mott, was born in 1690 in Flushing, NY. [1] [2] [3]


He married Charity Farrington, daughter of John Martin Farrington & Elizabeth Chandler. [3] Note: there is a typographical error in Josephine C. Frost's The Haviland Genealogy in regards to their marriage. She wrote:

BENJAMIN HAVILAND, son of Benjamin and Abigail (Mott) Haviland, b. prior to 1698; m. Charity Farrington (?) of Flushing, May 16, 1724. Letters of adm. were granted to Charity on his estate." [3]

There should be a period after "Flushing" and a comma after "1724." Compare with a record in the Abstracts of Wills for New York State:
William Burnet, Esq., Captain-General and Governor. Whereas, BENJAMIN HAVILAND, late of Rye, in the County of Westchester, died intestate, Letters of Administration are granted to his wife, Charity Haviland, May 16, 1724. [4]

  2. Charity Haviland [3]
  3. Isaac "Tuck" Haviland [3]
  4. Solomon Haviland [3]


According to the History of Rye, Benjamin conveyed a farm of one hundred and thirty acres in Harrison to his son Ebenezer. (County Record, lib. G. P. 6). [5] "Benjamin owned land adjoining his father's and brothers' as will be noted under his father's real estate records." [3]

Death & Burial

He died 16 May 1724 in Rye, NY. [2] It would seem that he died a couple years before his father, at the young age of 34, and since they both have the same name and died in Rye, this has caused some genealogical confusion.
