To continue with this:

1st- one correction to message 125 on this forum.
The info at item; year 1633 should read Pardon 'John' Tillinghast, the yeoman etc... Anne T.[b-1615] had
married Thomas Barnden; issue: Anne Barnden.

Rose Tillinghast, in her book, does not identify
Benjamin and Anne as twins, even if 'fraternal'.
Sir Anthony does by the birthdays of both,
[January 10,1630, in Ifield]. Pardon John T. was
a 'yeoman'and a barrel-maker, and this would account
for most of the children being born in Streat,
while Sarah was born [Nov 15,1627]in Cowfield and
the Fraternal twins in Ifield,Lewes Hundred. And
while I'm on the subject, No one has mentioned that
Lydia Taber, Pardon's 2nd wife, was also a fraternal
twin with her brother, John, both born on Nov 8, 1640.
John died in 1702 and Lydia in 1720.

Lydia Taber's parents were:
Philip Taber- b-1605, d-1672
-M- Dec 21,1639
Lydia Masters- b-1605, b-1651 in Cambridge, Mass

Lydia Master's parents were:
John Masters- b-Mar 8,1582 d-Dec 9,1639.[He was the son of John Masters, b-1555, no further info yet]
-M- 1606
Jane Cox, b-1586 in England and d-1639 in Cambridge, Mass

Lydia had siblings--Philip Taber, b-1644 in Sandwich, Mass
d-1695 in Dartmouth,Mass
& Thomas Taber, b-1646 in Yarmouth.Mass and
d-Dec 11,1730 in Dartmouth, Mass

A further note on Pardon E. Tillinghast; He was not only a local business man but he seemed to be into the Export-Import Trade also. One History of Rhode Island Records that he built the first Deep River Wharf in Providence for Ocean-Going Trading Ships. A couple of his sons and many of his descendants were Captains, including my ancestor, Joseph, [1667-1763], his fourth son and 9th child by Lydia Taber.
An unusual occurance happened in the years 1750-1776 in that there were 4 Captains named Joseph Tillinghast in those years, one of whom seems to have been the 'INSTIGATOR' of the assualt on the British Ship, 'The Graf-spee. Type in Graf-spee in your address space on your browser page and read about the search to determine which one it was. My Captain Joseph was naturally not involved.
He would have been an old man at the time.
But except for him owning interests in several ships I can't find much about him.

For all you 'neo-phytes' out there, just beginning your research on this family, you might want to research also the Taber; Masters-PARDON; message boards and any board with a name that associates with a marriage of one of your Tillinghast ancestors. The Brown message board may be of some help regarding Sarah, daughtr of the Vicar Benjamin Browne who married Pardon John Tillinghast, the Beer-barrel
maker. That's a contrast; a Vicar and a beer-barrel maker.

Regards to all; Elton
