    • RESEARCH_NOTES:
      1. Today's Hampden County of Massachusetts was originally Middlesex County until it was split off in 1662 and named Hampshire County. Hampden County was formed from Hampshire County in 1812.

      2. FHL book 929.273 B233bd, "The Connecticut Barbers, A Genealogy of the Descendants of Thomas Barber of Windsor, Connecticut," 2nd Ed., Donald S. Barber: "John Barber, bapt. 24 Jul 1642 at Windsor, CT, d. 17 Jan 1711/12; md. (1) Windsor 2 Sep 1663 Bathsheba Coggin, b. probably Taunton, MA about 1645, d.

(2) 2 May 1689 Hannah (Gardner) Bancroft, widow of Thomas Bancroft, and probably dau. of Samuel Gardner of Hadley, MA. John lived in Windsor on the original homestead, which was left to him by his father. When he moved his family to Springfield, MA, in 1671, the Windsor home was transferred to his brother Samuel. John lived in Springfield from 1671 to 1684, during which time he served as Deacon in Christ Church in Springfield, and also as one of the Springfield Selectman. The year 1684 found the restless John and his family in Suffield, CT, where he remained for a time, after which he returned to finish his days in Springfield.

      "Samuel and Joanna Gardner
      No substantive evidence has been found for the parents of Samuel Gardner, and those published claims of his parents that have been reviewed do not survive critical review of claimed dates, places and various relationships. The basic Gardner family information is from Genealogies of Hadley Families, by Lucius M. Boltwood (1905, reprinted Baltimore 1979), and other standard colonial New England sources.
      Samuel Gardner - b. 1615; d. Nov. 22, 1696, Hadley, Hampshire Co., MA. Samuel was an original proprietor of Hartford in 1640, was reportedly at Wethersfield, CT in 1641, and removed to Hadley, Hampshire Co., MA in 1663. He was said to be about age 81 at death. Married first say about 1640, probably at Hartford, Hartford Co., CT, and second about 1646 to Elizabeth (d. Jun. 21, 1676, Hadley, Hampshire Co., MA). Joanna - d. about 1646, possibly at Wethersfield, CT.
      Children of Samuel and Joanna Gardner:
      Samuel - d. Jan. 12, 1677, Hadley, Hampshire Co., MA. Never married. The settlement of his estate in 1677 states that Joanna and Sarah were his only sisters.
      John - d. Nov. 26, 1684, Hadley, Hampshire Co., MA. Married 1681 to Mehitable Hinsdale. John and Mehitable had no children.
      Joanna - d. Mar. 18, 1729, Hadley, Hampshire Co., MA. Married Feb. 3, 1680/1 at Hadley, Hampshire Co., MA to Nathaniel Warner (b. about 1655; d. Jan. 15, 1714, Hadley, Hampshire Co., MA), son of John Warner and Priscilla Symonds. A weaver, Nathaniel became freeman in 1683. Children of Joanna and Nathaniel Warner: Nathaniel did not marry; John; Daniel; Elizabeth married Samuel Pease; and Israel.
      Sarah - b. say about 1646, CT. Married John Preston.
      Children of Samuel and Elizabeth Gardner
      Hannah - b. about 1647. One source states she was married in 1675 to Nathaniel Bancroft, but this has not been confirmed. [Kerry's note: mix-up with Thomas Bancroft?]
      Elizabeth - b. about 1648; d. Nov. 29, 1684, Hadley, Hampshire Co., MA. Married Nov. 21, 1664 to John Ingram (b. about 1642; d. Jun. 22, 1722, Hadley, Hampshire Co., MA). John became freeman in 1683 at Hadley, Hampshire Co., MA. Children of Elizabeth and John Ingram: John married Mehitable Dickinson; Jadiah; Samuel married Hannah Warner; Ebenezer died young; Nathaniel married Esther Smith; Jonathan did not marry; Elizabeth did not marry; and Abigail.
      Abigail - Married on Nov. 12, 1673 to Isaac Morgan (b. 1652; d. 1701). They resided at Springfield, MA and Enfield, CT.
      Mary - d. Jun. 6, 1662, probably at Wethersfield, CT.
      Martha - b. Jan. 8, 1664, Hadley, Hampshire Co., MA; d. Feb. 15, 1664, Hadley, Hampshire Co., MA.
      Nathaniel - d. Dec. 8, 1676, Hadley, Hampshire Co., MA.

      4. It may be significant that Hannah's daughter, Rebecca Bancroft, names two of her children Hannah and Gardner - perhaps after her mother Hannah Gardner.
