    Notes 
    • From Frances Manwaring’s History of Norwich, Connecticut:
      “Hugh, born in June, 1659, married Sarah, daughter of Thomas Slu- man and step-daughter of Solomon Tracy. She died in 1703, and he married, second, Lois Standish, probably daughter of Capt. Josiah Stand- ish of Preston.
      “He had five children, and left them at his death what was then considered a large estate. After providing for the widow, the oldest son had a double portion, and the others inherited equal shares of £203 10s. (The inventory of his effects, taken a few days after his death, mentions the articles of honey, beeswax, butter, cider, and metheglin, which shows the variety of domestic produce of that day. Metheglin was a favorite beverage of the old inhabitants.)
