Some of the Babcock profiles in this category have their origin in the Albert Welles Fraud -- see Category: Albert Welles Fraud

In 1844 Mr. Sidney Babcock, of New Haven, Conn., printed a leaflet containing the Babcock coat of arms, and certain Babcock family records which he states were copied from records prepared by Albert Wells, of Palmyra, N. Y.
In American Family Antiquity, published in 1881 by Albert Welles, the dates and incidents found in the leaflet referred to are essentially repeated.
A catalogue of the First Puritan Settlers of the Colony of Connecticut, published by R. R. Hinman, 1846, contains virtually the same Babcock records as those given by Welles. In 1852 Hinman published another volume of the same name, in which his Babcock records are repeated and enlarged, and at the end of these records he states "Communicated by Wells ;" hence it appears that Wells was responsible for Babcock records published by Hinman.
