Hannah was born 29 May 1748 in Preston, to parents John Walbridge Hannah Killam.[1] She was baptized 17 July 1748 in the Second Church of Preston.[2]

Hannah Wallbridge married Jonathan Murdock in Coventry, Tolland County, Connecticut, USA, 20 March 1777. Their children, all born in Coventry, were:

  • Hannah, born 7 January 1778
  • Polly, born 7 May 1779
  • Dan, born 3 November 1781
  • Roxa, born 10 August 1783
  • Licindia, born 7 June 1785
  • Samuel, born 13 March 1787
  • Betsey, born 20 December 1789.[3]

No record of Hannah's death was found in record collections of familysearch.org, ancestry.com, or americanancestors.org. Further, reviewed a large number of trees on other sites which included Hannah (Wallbridge) Murdock, and found no death dates for her at all, even unsourced dates.

Informational Notes

  1. The Newent Church records show baptisms of John Wallbridge's children as follows: William, May 21, 1738; John, April 13, 1740; Samuel, Oct. 31, 1742. The South Coventry records state that Isaac (s. John, bp. Apr. 6, 1746) and Hannah (see above) were born at Preston, so John, Sr., must have been there as late as 1748, removing thence to Coventry, Conn., where the Town Records give the births of the last five children.
  2. The Griswold Society was established in October 1716 as North or Second Church of Preston by division of the First Society. Part of Preston including this Society was incorporated October 1815 as Griswold. (from Connecticut, Church Record Abstracts, Volume 043 Griswold, unnumbered page preceding page 1.)
