    • Ralph, was of Ashford, Kent, England, when he married Alice, and remained there for at least twenty years before coming to New England. He was probably not in New Haven in 1639, but he drew his lot for the small lots on the bank side and by the west dreek on 17 Mar 1641/2. He took the oath of fidelity 5 Aug 1647. By 1650 he settled in East Hampton, Long Island. There he was appointed agent to the Connecticut Colony in 1651. He was also chosen for constable 7 Oct 1651. Not long before his death Ralph moved from East Hampton with his son Samuel to Southampton, where his will was recorded, 25 Jul 1658, settling at North Sea, then called Northampton, and leaving his son Robert on the East Hampton realty which he had conveyed to him in 1655.

      It has been said that Ralph Dayton was the son of William & Agnes (Green) Dayton. [2]
