"William and Mary Briggs are first mentioned in a curious double entry of their daughter Hannah's birth in Boston. The first entry informs us that "Hannah of Wm Briggs [was] born and buried 28 day (6th) month [August]" 1642, but on the next page we find, as an apparent correction, that "Hannah of William and Mary Briggs [was] born 6th month," 1642.[1] Some years later, in 1648, her father bought from Henry Pease, Sr. a house and lot located at the junction of lanes that eventually became Hanover and Portland streets.[2]
. . .
1. WILLIAM1 BRIGGS was born about 1605 (aged 61 in June 1666[37]) and was living at Lyme, Connecticut, on 5 February 1680/1 when he sold property there to his son John.[38] His wife MARY _____, in Boston by 1642, was living on 15 December 1670 when she consented to her husband's deed of meadow land in Lyme, but she had perhaps died before 4 January 167[0/]1 when a mortgage of their land in Middletown did not include her consent.[39] They moved from Boston to Wethersfield in 1665, resided briefly there and just across the town line in Middletown, then settled in Lyme about 1670.
