Edward Patterson, known in history as "The Mighty Man of Valour." [he fought in the Pequot War.]
"EDWARD PATTERSON, born in England about 1601, died in New Haven, Connecticut, October 31, 1670. On March 16, 1634 in the list of persons to be transported to New England in 'ye Ship Christian, de lo, John White, Master,' appears the name 'Edward Patterson, age 33,' and in 1637 he enlisted from Windsor, Connecticut, as a soldier in the Pequot War. In 1639 his name is among the original proprietors of New Haven, Connecticut, where his children were baptised. His wife was Elizabeth (surname not on record) and his children baptised in New Haven were: John, Baptised January, 1644, died young; and ELIZABETH, baptised July 12, 1644; died December 24, 1727; married, 1662, Thomas Smith. (Smith I.)"
Edward Patterson was born about 1601 and died October 31, 1670. His wife is not named. They had two children: John, baptized January 1644, died young; Elizabeth, baptized July 12, 1644, died December 24, 1727, married Thomas Smith.
Edward Patteson was enrolled at London as a passenger for New England on the Christian. There is no direct evidence of his first residence, but it appears that he lived first in Saybrook before moving to New Haven. He served in the Pequot War under Capt. John Mason who was based at Saybrook. Anderson does not give a name for Edward's wife, but estimates they were married by about 1642. They had two children, Elizabeth who married Thomas Smith, and John. Anderson suggests that, based on the baptismal records for the two children, it is likely that Elizabeth was born about 1642 and that John was born later.
