In Reply to: Re: JOHN ENOS/1654 - 1681/ CONNECTICUT by DEAN ENOS of 522

There are two lines of Eno/Enos in early America. One line descends from a Jaques/James Henno or Eno, a Hugenot born in 1625 in England. In America he married Anna Bidwell on 8/18/1648. They had 3 children: Sarah, James and John; and lived in or near Windsor, CT. Sarah married Benjamin Holcomb in 1667. James married Abigal Bissell and had children James, William John, and David. John married Mary Dibble; they had several daughters and one son, Richard, born in 1693. Some descendants changed the name to Enos, notably Col. Roger Enos.

My line begins with a John Enos or Eanoss who was a freeman in Westerly, RI in 1680. We don't know where he came from, or who his parents were. He married Rebecca (LeFose?) in 1693. He died in 1751, survived by sons John "Jr" and Joseph (my ancestor). He named serveral grandchildren in his will, so we know had other children. We believe them to include William (m. Dinah Austin), Rebecca (M. Andrew Daleriset - had son John), Elizabeth (M. Joshua Lewis), possibly Ichabod (m. Margaret - daughters Luch & Eilzabeth), and possibly Alexander. John "Jr." married either Mercy Hall or Sarah Lewis and had son John, daughter Thankful (m. Burdick), and daughter Tabitha (m. Wilcox.) Joseph married Margaret Webster and had several children: Joseph, Marcy, Margaret, Hannah, Annie, and two sons named Benjamin, one of whom died young, and the second of whom was my ancestor. Benjamin married Elizabeth Parke, descendant of Sir Robert Parke.

We are looking into the possibility that the oldest John Enos/Eanoss may have been related to the Alexander Ennes/Innes/Enos, a Scotsman sent to America in 1650 as an indentured servant who ultimately settled with wife Katherine on Block Island.
