Searle/Brown families in Coventry
Posted by: Dorrie Simon (ID *****0062) Date: January 04, 2004 at 09:40:11

I'm wondering if anyone out there can give me some help with finding information on the Searle (or Searl or Sarle) and Brown families in Coventry. This is what I know:

Ebenezer Searls Jr. b. 8 May 1716 in Windham, Windham Township, Connecticut, married Truelove Brown in Coventry, Tolland County, Connecticut on July 20, 1741.

They have a daughter, Cibel Searle, born in Tolland on Dec.6th 1744.

Ebenezer's family:
Father: Ebenezer Searle, Sr., b. 9 July 1680 in Northampton, Hampshire, Massachusetts, d. 18 June 1739 in Coventry, Tolland County, Connecticut (Father: John Searle (2), b. 30 March 1641 in Springfield, Hampden County, Massachusetts, d. 3 October 1718 in Pascommuck Township, Easthampton, Massachusetts & Mother: Mary North, b. 1643 in Farmington Township, Hartford, Connecticut, d. 5 March 1726 in Northampton, Hampshire, Massachusetts)

Mother: Martha Moore, b. 22 February 1682 in New London, Windham, Connecticut, d. 7 November 1756 in Coventry, Tolland County, Connecticut (Father: William Moore, b. 1650 in Killingworth, Middlesex, Connecticut, d. April 1729 & Mother: Mary Wellman, b. 1650 in New London, Windham, Connecticut, d. 30 April 1700 in Killingworth, Middlesex, Connecticut)

I don't know anything about Trulove Brown's family - or what happen to Cibel Searle.

Ebenezer bought and sold property in Coventry:
March 30th 1743 - bought from John Cady Jr. of Tolland “for consideration of one hundred twenty five pounds paid to me by Ebenezer Sarls Jr. of the town of Coventry …” When Ebenezer sells the property to Jonathan Weston of Norwich, on Oct. 8th 1746 , it is sold “with the buildings fences and improvements thereon”, for the amount of two hundred fifty pounds.

If anyone can share any information or give me a clue to where to look further I would greatly appreciate it.
