Biography

Daniel was born about 1615, probably at Hamburg, Germany.[1] Daniel's birth date has as yet to be discovered. His parents lived in Yarmouth, Norfolk, England in 1611, when his brother, John's, birth record is found there. The next record of the family is in Hamburg, Germany, in 1617, where his father was chaplain to the Society of Merchant Adventurers of England. He is also known to have pastored a congregation in Sandwich, Kent, England, before 1620. Daniel could have been born in any of these places. In 1620, his father accepted a post as pastor in Flushing and Middelburg in the Netherlands, and later in the Hague. Daniel would have spent much of his childhood there.

It is believed he arrived in Massachusetts in 1632 aboard the William and Francis with his mother, brothers and grandfather.[2] However, the family is not found in any Massachusetts records until 1637/8.[3]

On 28 June 1640, Andrew Hallett conveyed certain land to Daniel, the instrument being witnessed by John Wing and Edward Dillingham.[1]

In 1641, he helped his younger brother, Steven, build the Wing Fort House in what is now East Sandwich, Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The house is still standing... and is still owned by the Wing Family of America. It is the longest continuous ownership of a structure by one family in America.

In 1643, he was listed among those able to bear arms; in 1652, he was among those appointed to take charge of the fishing interests in Sandwich.

In 1654, he was among 22 inhabitants who paid for a mill.

In 1652, he and other prominent Sandwich residents were caught up in a serious religious dissension in the town. In 1657, Quakers made their first appearance in Sandwich, and Daniel became an early adherent to that faith. He was fined 20 shillings the following March for entertaining Quakers in his home. He refused to take the "oath of fidelity" and was therefore fined twenty pounds. In December 1658, he lost his status as freeman.

He married 5th day 9th month (November) 1642, Hannah Swift, daughter of William Swift,[4][5] by his first wife (possibly "Sarah"), not his second wife Joan.

"Hannah Wing ye wife of Daniell wing Deceased ye thirty first Day of ye Eleventh moneth in ye yeare one thousand six hundred sixty & foure : 1664."[6]

Daniel married second, also at Sandwich, Anna Ewer "in the fourth moneth of ye yeare one thousand six hundred sixty and six."[7] He took over the administration of the estate of Thomas Ewer, his new wife's first husband, and was subject to the complaint of Thomas Clarke in October 1667: “Daniell Winge, administrator to the estate of Thomas Ewer…to the damage of thirty pounds, for non payment of a debt of twenty three pounds and all money due him from Ewer.”[8]

Daniel died on March 10, 1697/8 at Sandwich, Barnstable, Massachusetts.

In his Will, dated the day he died, March 10, 1697/8, Daniel called himself "Daniel Wing Sen of Sandwich." He mentioned: his youngest son, Jashub; sons Samuel, Bachelder, John and Daniel; an unnamed wife, then living; and daughter Lydia Abott. The Inventory of his estate was taken on March 20, 1697/8. His Will was probated on April 5, 1698.[9]

Rev. John was first cited as the pastor for the Society of Merchant Adventurers at Hamburg in Nov 1617. It is likely he emigrated there shortly before this date. This would mean that Daniel would likely have been born in England.

In the Introduction to his published sermon "The Crowne Conjugall" (1620) Rev. John dedicated the sermon to the citizens of Sandwich, Kent, England, where he had formerly lived. Thus it is likely Daniel was born there. Unfortunately, Daniel's baptismal record has never been discovered.

posted by Raymond Wing
The will of Matthew Wing(e) was made on 9 Aug 1614. This will mentions his son John, and John's children Deborah & John. This indicates that Daniel was born after this date.

In addition, A Joseph Wing was baptized at Hamburg (Germany) on 5 Nov 1618. At this time Rev. John Wing was in Hamburg serving as the pastor for the Society of Merchant Adventurers. It is believed this was John's son (and it is also believed John was the minister who wrote this baptismal record).

Thus Daniel was born sometime between these dates (Aug 1614 - Nov 1618). This is where the c1616 date comes from.

Erlon, we have guidelines in place for the LNAB, please see: PGM Guidance. We try to use contemporary records and document the spelling variations based on those documents. If you find a document with a variation, please post a source for it and we can add it.
posted by Bobbie (Madison) Hall
I know many surnames were changed when families immigrated. His mother is spelled as Winge on Wikitree. Perhaps the name was changed to Wing and was originally Wynge? Note the various spellings as you look through the Wing Line. Perhaps this is causing some problems with researching the birth date and other info? Best
posted by Anonymous Bailey
I'd say, if you've found those alternate spellings in genuinely reliable records for Daniel, then yes -- add them in the "Other Last Name(s)" field, as this will help others who may search for his profile under those spellings.
