              DESCENDANTS OF SAMUEL I UTLEY & HANNAH HATCH


                            First Generation

	1.	SAMUEL I UTLEY was born say 1635. He died about 1662 in Scituate, Plymouth Co., MA.

Samuel Utley I was supposedly from Thorns West Riding, Yorkshire, England1

Samuel I was a freeman in Scituate, MA in 16572

At a meeting of the Plymouth Court on 3 June 1662 "Mr. Hatherley is desired
and deputed by the Court to administer an oath to the widdow VTLEY, of Scituate for the truth 
of the inventory of her husband's estate, whoe is lately deceased, in regard that shee is weake and 
ill, and not able to make her psonall appeerance att the Court." At the Court Meeting of 10 June 
1662 Mr.Timothy Hatherly was again appointed to administer the oath 3

Widow Utley's "weake and ill" condition may have been due to pregnancy or
the recent birth of a child.  It is possible that she did not survive this
illness and another member of her family raised the children or she may have
remarried.  Eventually the Utley children appear in the records of Stonington, CT.
