Thomas Curtis´ Ancestors living in Scituate MA **COMPLETED**
« on: Friday 22 May 09 13:44 BST (UK) »
I have been asked if I can find any information about the ancestors of the CURTIS family who emigrated to Scituate Massachusetts in the late 17th century.

The information I have been given is as follows:

Thomas CURTIS born and died in Kent England.

Son Richard CURTIS born ca 1621 in Kent, emigrated to the U.S. ( year not known)
His children: ALL born in Scituate Mass.

1) Hannah (Anna) Curtis born May 12 1649

2) Elizabeth Curtis  born Jan 12 1651 - married Nathaniel BROOKS

3) John Curtis born Dec 1653 - married Miriam BROOKS

4) Mary Curtis born Jan 9 1655 - married a Mr Babcock?

5) Martha Curtis born Mar 17 1657 - married Thomas CLARKE Jan 11 1676

6) Thomas Curtis born Mar 18 1659 - married Mary COOKE 1694
THEIR children were:
a) Deborah,
b) Ruth,
c) Mary,
d) Thomas                      and another
e) Ruth (I presume the first Ruth died young.)
The descendants of Thomas and Mary lived in Scituate, Abington and Hanover Mass.

7) Deborah Curtis born April 16 1661

Can anyone help with ANY information about the family CURTIS who live in Scituate?

I have found the following lead on www.familysearch.org

Also, Richard CURTIS father was William born ca 1593 in Ash parish near Sandwich in Kent England

Hope tis helps further....

Are you in the US?  If so, I can send you a link that may give you some more information on your Curtises.  Let me know if you can't open this, and I will forward the information via PM.

 http://tiny.cc/Pgc0C

It is from a book by William Cutter, relating to the families of Massachusetts

Here is another entry from a different journal with Richard's first wife.  (this first wife, Ann, is disputed in the link below on John Hallet)

And here is one that gives references.  Scroll down to Richard Curtis.

Another link with the will of John Hallet, father in law of Richard Curtis.

And from the same website, information on Richard Curtis.

There may be more, just google search, Richard Curtis or Curtice and Scituate.

Thank you for the links, these help fill in some details of what happened to the family after they left England.

The Curtis family lived in Nazing Essex England and son Thomas married in Kent before emigrating to Massachusetts.

Another son, William Curtis, born 1592, married Sarah Elliot August 6 1618 and died March 27 1673 in Roxbury Suffolk Massachusetts.

John Curtis, born 1590, died 1639 in Roxbury Suffolk Mass.

Thomas Curtis born Jan 21 1594 died Nov 13 1681 in Hatfield Hampshire Mass.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

 William Curtis, born 1545 in Nazing Essex, married Agnes (unknown) in 1493.

One of their children, John Curtis born Sept 15 1577 died 1639 in Wethersfield Hartford CT. He married Elizabeth Hutchinson, marriage April 19 1610. Elizabeth died 1658 in Stratford Fairfield CT.

Can anyone confirm?

This link is to digital books provided by BYU.

http://www.lib.byu.edu/fhc/index.php

If you go scroll down to the "advanced search", put John Curtis in the "exact phrase", and Wethersfield in one of the other 2 selections.  You might be interested in the 2nd book that pops up; "A Genealogy of the Curtiss Family Being a Record of the Descendants of the Widow Elizabeth Curtiss, Who Settled in Stratford, Conn. 1639-40"; by Frederic Haines Curtiss, 1903.
