The Phelps Immigrants

While there has been various claims about the Phelps ancestry in England, as yet no positive connection to any of the American immigrants (William, George and Richard) has been established. It has also been determined through Y-DNA analysis that William PHELPS and George PHELPS were not brothers and have no identifiable common patrilineal ancestor. The Phelps DNA Project shows that the modal Y-DNA of descendants of William and George differ in 26 of 37 markers.

Griswold Ancestry in England

The principal information source for the Griswold ancestry is The Greswolds Family: Twelve Generations in England, researched and editied by Robert L. & Esther G. French and compiled by Coralee Griswold (1999). Only an outline of the earlier Greswold generations is presented here. Those interested in source citations, lineage analysis and further details are encouraged to supported further research by purchasing a copy of the booklet from the publisher, The Griswold Family Association. Refer also to the series of short articles in The American Genealogist (Vols. 39-41), by Kiepura, Jacobus, and Hunt, on the GRISWOLD ancestry. Each of these articles builds on and corrects the preceding, so they should be consulted as a unit.

Edward and Margaret Griswold

Edward GRISWOLD - bap. Jul. 26, 1607, Wooten Wawen, Warwickshire; d. Aug. 30, 1691, Killingworth (now Clinton) Middlesex Co., CT; bur. Indian River Cem., Killingworth, CT. A memorial [photo] to Edward and Margaret GRISWOLD was erected at Killingworth in 1990 by the Griswold Family in America. Son of George GRISWOLD and Dousabel. An attorney, Edward was delegate to the General Court, Justice of the Peace, and Deacon of the church. Married first by 1629 at Kenilworth, Warwickshire. Edward married second in 1672 the widow Sarah (DIAMOND) BEMIS (b. about 1632, Kenilworth, Warwickshire, England), daughter of John and Rebecca DIAMOND, and widow of James BEMIS (b. abt 1626 Dedham, Essex, England; d. Jul. 1665, New London Co., CT). Daughters of Sarah and James BEMIS: Rebecca married first Tobias MINTER, second John DYMOND, and third Bebedict SATTERLEE; and Mary married her step-brother John GRISWOLD.

Margaret - d. Aug. 23, 1670, Killingworth (now Clinton), Middlesex Co., CT. Her gravestone in the Congregational Church Cemetery is engraved 'M. G. 1670'. Surname not known. Genevieve Tylee Kiepura writes in "Griswold Ancestry in England" (The American Genealogist 39:176-180) that "Edward GRISWOLD m. Margaret BLENCOW of Marston St. Lawrence, co. Northampton, dau of John BLENCOW and his wife Mary WALLISON." However, in "Note on the Ancestry of the Griswolds of Connecticut" (The American Genealogist 40:43-44), John G. Hunt conclusively shows that the Edward GRISWOLD who married Margaret BLENCOW is not the immigrant to CT, and Genevieve Tylee Kiepura concurs. The Griswold Family Association identifies the husband of Margaret BLENCOW as Edward GRESWOLD (1594-1633) son of Thomas GRESWOLD and Elizabeth SHUCKBURGH - this Edward being father of the American immigrant Michael GRISWOLD of Wethersfield, CT.
