                            First Generation

	1.	CLEMENT II KING, was born say 1630 in England probably  the son of CLEMENT I
KING  & MARY RAYNOR  of Cripplegate, England.. He died about 1694 in Providence,
Providence Co., RI.1

Clement King was a constable in Marshfield, MA in the year 1668.  In this
office he was ordered to take into custody the goods of Capt. Nathaniel Thomas & his
son William Thomas and to dispose of them accordingly. The Thomas' were fined for
abusing Clement in the execution of his duty.2  Clement was proposed  a freeman in
Marshfield 7 June 1681 and admitted freeman 6 June 1682.3

Clement King of Marshfield, MA purchased land in Providence, RI from Ephraim
Carpenter on 27 May 1687, deed recorded 16 Apr 1712 witnessed by Thomas Olney &
John Whipple.4  In 1685 Clement King was ordered to sweep the meetinghouse for a
whole year and "do it well".5  The following letter mentioning Clement King was printed
in The Collections of Rhode Island Historical Society, Vol. #10:359/60: "Pawtucket

Clement was a member of the 4th Company Train Band of Providence in January
1686.6  His name is on a tax list in August of 1688 rated 2s9d.7
Raymon Myers Tingley in his "Ancestors of Guilford Solon printed in 1935
says Clement King had three wives. Tingley says that he married (1) Johanna
Pratt 10 Jan 1655 in Plymouth; (2) Susannah Atwood 8 July 1666 and (3)
Elizabeth Baker in Ipswich, MA 5 Feb. 1672.  I could not find proof of any of these 

CLEMENT II married (1) SUSANNAH. Susannah supposedly died on 19 Jun 1669 in
Marshfield, MA.8 This may be in error as Marshfield VR may refer to a daughter of
Clement II.

They had the following children:

	2	F	i.	JOHANNA KING was born on 28 Sep 1655 in Marshfield, MA.9  She
died after 1695.

NOTE:  Both the King Genealogy and Mr. Tingley say that there was a
second  Johanna born Sept. 1674 in Marshfield.  I did not find this birth
in Marshfield printed VRS but if there were two Johannas the one born
in 1655 had to die young and it was the one born 1674 who married
Joshua Turner.

JOHANNA married JOSHUA TURNER. who died about 1695/1696.

Joanna Turner was granted administration of her husband's estate at a
meeting of the Providence Town Council 3 Mar 1695/96.10

	3	M	ii.	SUSANNAH KING was buried on 19 Jun 1669 in Marshfield,

CLEMENT II also married (2) ELIZABETH about 1670. Elizabeth was born say
1635. Elizabeth (King) Barnes died before 20 Dec. 1708 when an inventory was taken
of her estate.  Administration of the estate was granted to her eldest son John King
of Providence, RI.  Her inventory consisted of lands, clothing and other goods valued at
L112-7-10 .12

ELIZABETH married 2 THOMAS BARNES 12 Nov. 1694 Providence, RI.13
 Thomas died  8 June 1706 Swansea, MA14 The will of Thomas Barnes dated 7 May 1705 was
proved 3 July 1706. Among others mentioned was wife Elizabeth  to receive “things that were 
hers before Marriage”.15

    CLEMENT II and ELIZABETH had the following children:16

	4	M	iii.	JAMES KING died on 19 Nov 1756 in Gloucester, RI.

On 21 Feb. 1757 the Town Clerk of Gloucester received the following
"This may inform you that our ancient brother James King of
Gloucester, departed this life on the 19th day of November A.D. 1756,
which we desire you would enter on your records. To the Town Clerk
of Gloucester" s/Samuel, Mary, John, Joshua & Elizabeth Winsor.17
These could be James' in-laws by first marriage or just fellow church

John KING, a weaver by occupation, was in Providence, RI on 3 Mar 1695 when he
served as one of the appraisers of the estate of his brother-in-law Joshua
Turner whose administrator was Johanna Turner.29  On 2 Dec. 1695 John purchased 
land in Providence from John Aldrich30 On 22 Apr 1697 John leased a 
dwelling house and 600 acres of land to Thomas Barnes for a period of two years.31 
On  7 June 1707 John King of Socanosset was appointed to the office of constable.32
On 11 Feb. 1707/08 John King's cattle mark was recorded as being "a forke on ye topp

Mashantatack gave notice that he had taken up a stray steere "of a Red Culler with a
star in his forhead and sum white about his Leggs being one yare and vantage old and
Eare marked with a fork in the Right Eare and a Crop of on the top of the Left Eare."34
The custom of ear marking cattle certainly cut down on disputes as to ownership of lost
or strayed cows.  On 14 Jan. 1707 John King of Providence purchased land in that town
from Andrew Harris for the sum of six pounds, transaction witnessed by Thomas
Vinsent & Jeremiah Rhodes.35

On 29 Oct 1707 John King appealed to the Assembly from the judgment of a court of 
common pleas wherein Joseph Carpenter of Musket Cove, LI had received judgment in
an action of trespass and ejectment.  The verdict was sustained by the Assembly and an
agreement was made between the parties that Carpenter would pay John King  for the
use of the children of William Vinson, deceased, L20 and King to give possession of
house and land, sued for and recovered by verdict.36

On 21 Nov 1711 John sold his house and 50 acres of land to John Stone for L72
and on 11 Mar 1718, he sold his brother Thomas King, 12 acres of land for L4.37

About the Year 1715, the widow of Joseph Aldrich was committed to the care of
John King of Mashantatuck and L4 was paid to him for keeping her.38 On 27 Oct. 1715
in a report of the Committee of Town Debt there is a notation, "to John King 
for keeping Mary Aldrich two years and two months L20-10-6 .39
On 14 Feb. 1718/19 John King, weaver, and Elizabeth his wife, deeded to Andrew
Harris his farm excepting "two poles square land where my father, my child and Joshua
Turner are buried".40

On 11 Nov. 1723 the administration of John King's estate was granted to his
widow Elizabeth King.41 The inventory of his estate dated 8 Nov. 1723 amounted to
L299-02-00 personal estate.  His real estate holdings were listed as follows on the
inventory of the estate:42

To the old farme bought of Joshua Westcott,  L600-00-00

To the home farme at soconauset,  420-00-00

On 10 Feb 1724 John King, son of John King Sr. deceased, stated that land of

children and that the children's interests would be prejudiced and their
portions would be so small.  It was ordered by the Court that after the widow's one third
were taken out, the balance would be entrusted to John Jr, he paying the council the

On 18 Mar 1738 Elizabeth King, widow, of Smithfield, RI sold land located in
Smithfield to her son Josiah King  for L200.  On 3 Mar 1755 administration of

There are two John Staffords listed in the 1774 Census of Rhode Island  - 
one with 2 males above 16, 5 males under 26, 1 female above 16 and 1 female under 16 
The other listing does not list  the female under 16.  This may be a duplicate entry 

John STAFFORD and his family came to Guilford, VT from Rhode Island about
the Year 1780.91All of John's children were probably born in Scituate, RI and their
births are also recorded in the Guilford Town Clerk's Office.  In the pension record
previously mentioned Stukely Stafford states "that he had no record of his birth except
one in his Bible which was several years since transferred from an old family Bible in
the hands of his brother in the State of New York." This probably refers to his brother
Isaac Stafford of Preston, NY.  The Bible is printed in DAR Bible Records, Vol. 90,
NY State Library.

The Last Will & Testament of John Stafford is filed at Windham,
Marlborough District, Vermont Probate Court in Brattleboro, VT.  The document
is dated 13 Jan. 1785 and was probated 8 Apr. 1785.  John Noyes was the
executor and the will is abstracted as follows: "To Mary Stafford, my loving
wife, all household stuff and movable estate during her natural life and after her decease
said estate be equally divided amongst all my children.  Then I give to my loving wife
Mary Stafford the use and enjoyment of one third of my homestead farm in said
Guilford during her natural life. "I give to my sons John, Samuel, Stukely, Job and
Obadiah and the children of my daughter Lydia Moffet/Muffet deceased, five
shillings apiece."  I give unto my two sons Isaac and Thomas my homestead farm to be
equally divided between them allowing to my said wife her third part during her life as
aforesaid." My will is that if my son Thomas shall not accept the half of my said
homestead farm as above said, my will is that I give the said to my son John
STAFFORD." Witnesses: Rufus Fish, Amos Noyes, Samuel Fish.

The inventory of John's estate was taken 9 Apr. 1785 and amounted to
L116-9-6.  Edward Barney and Rufus Fish were appraisers.  On 6 Nov. 1786, John
Noyes was appointed guardian of Job Stafford, aged 20 years .92
