From The History of the Treman, Tremaine, Truman Family in America, by
Ebenezer Mack Treman, 1901
"His ancestors lived anciently in Cornwall, England. He was born in
Nottinghamshire, England. He married in England but neither his wife's
name, nor the name of her family, has yet been ascertained. He appeared
with his wife, and perhaps some of his children, at New London, Conn., in 1666.
In the following year he was chosen constable, a position of considerable honor
in those days. he purchased in 1667 from Alex Piggins, and about 1670 from
Hugh Roberts, some pits for tanning, which were located in a meadow near the
entrance of Cape Ann Lane. Truman Brook and Truman Street are named after
him and his family. He had two tanneries, one at each end of this street
on Truman Brook. The brook ran into Bream Cove near the Hempstead lot.
He appears as plaintiff in law suits in Oct., 1682; May, 1683; Oct., 1683, and
May 1685. He died in 1697 at New London, Conn. In his will, executed
in Sept., 1696, he mentions four children, Joseph, Thomas, Elizabeth and Mary,
his daughter Ann having died before the will was made. In a note-book, now
in the possession of Lucy E. Greene of Denver, Col., which was owned by her
great-grandfather, Jonathan Truman, appears the following entry in 1822:
'Jonathan Truman, owner of this book, is the son of Jonathan Truman, born at New
London, June 25, 1730. He was the son of Thomas Truman who was also born
at New London. His father who was named Joseph, came to America from
England (Nottinghamshire), in company with a brother who settled in Virginia.
He left at New London two sons, Joseph and Thomas, and a number of daughters."
