Research Notes

From The Tryon Family in America by Wes Tryon (accessed 24 Sep 2015):

DAVID TRYON 2.1b, second son of William Tryon 1.1 and Mary (Steele) Tryon, was born at Wethersfield, Conn., in 1672 or 1673. On Aug. 25, 1698, at Wethersfield, he married Hannah Waddams (another source spells it Wadhams), a daughter of John and Hannah Waddams, of Wethersfield, by John Clinton, J. P. She was born in 1680. David resided in Wethersfield until 1719, resided in Middletown from 1721 until 1723. In September 1725, he was living in Glastonbury. He was a ship builder, and died at Wethersfield before Dec. 23, 1730. According to Rev. Alonzo B. Chapin, published in 1853 in Glastonbury, Conn.: "David gave land to his 3 sons, David, Noah, and Ezra." The recorded children of David and Hannah were: Hannah 3.2a, David 3.2b, John 3.2c, Jonathan 3.2d, Susannah 3.2e, Joanna 3.2f, Noah 3.2g, Benjamin 3.2h, Ezra 3.2i, Charles 3.2j.

Probate records from father David Tryon state: "25 April 1734: Ezra Tryon of Wethersfield, age 14 years, son of David Tryon, chose his brother Jonathan Tryon to be his guardian." This would make Ezra born in 1720. This record also states that the inventory of David's estate was 23 Dec 1730, widow Hannah Tryon granted administrator 5 Jan 1730, 5 Mar 1733-4 son "Benjamin Tryon, a minor, 18 years of age, son of David Tryon, chose Ebenezer Dickinson of Wethersfield to be his guardian."

From David's profile here on WikiTree: Early Connecticut wills show that David's widow Hannah will filed Dec. 23, 1730 lists sons Benjamin, 18 years; Ezra, 14 years; and Charles, with Jonathan as guardian of his brothers. I have not been able to find this record online at this time. Note that this would make Ezra born in 1716.
